Growing Sunflowers Part Two ...

This weekend I transplanted my sprouted Sunflower seedlings.  I've had about 30 of them growing all together in one large pot.  They are the tallest greens just between the St. Francis and the metal rose.  I've put 6 or so in here and will let them all go for a while, then thin them out to the strongest 3.  More than that in this pot with everything else would be too crowded.  The stalks grow pretty thick.  I have Verbena, Aster and a Daisy along with them.

The Sunflowers will take a while to stabilize ... they don't really like being transplanted and will droop a bit in the heat of the sun.  Water them lightly every other day the first week.  I've put a very mild dose of Miracle Grow on all of mine.

Let me know how yours are doing, OK ?  Love from The Prairie.  xoxo.

Following Clouds ...

When I am following clouds and I find a view like this, I will always stop.  I love the pattern of the brand new foliage the corn brings to the photograph.  I also love the texture of the many shades of green in the grass and trees ... I love the browns and exactly where they are placed.  And the sky ???  I love it's power.

Check out Sky Watch Friday and see what someone else on the other side of the World found for you.  And follow your clouds while you follow your dreams.
