Pretty Yellow Sunflower Blossoms

When I used to think about sunflowers, I always thought of the color yellow! Growing my own sunflowers from seed, I've learned that there is so much more than just yellow. I've been sharing a lot of the vivid oranges and reds of the Autumn Beauty Sunflowers and not so much of the warm yellows. So, it's time to put the spotlight on the traditional sunflower in warm yellow colors!

You can see the sky behind these two pretty warm yellow sunflower blossoms which come from the same plant. There has been no photo-editing to add in that sky as these blossoms come from the plants which have reached over seven feet in height!

Here is another view of those two pretty warm yellow sunflower blossoms. Another day at a different time of day. Still quite impressive, I think!

I find this solitary yellow sunflower blossom very artistic. It looks like it was painted in the bright sky.

There is nothing pretty than a solitary bright yellow sunflower blossom captured against the clear blue sunny sky.

 This sunny yellow sunflower blossom makes me think of a pinwheel as it looks like it can spin!

I have been awed by the two-headed warm yellow sunflower blossom. It seems rather artistic how these two blooms have come together, one on top of the other! I'll have to share the picture of the harvested head that I am drying for seeds!

There have been a few of my sunflower plants which didn't achieve the seven feet in height. These petite plants have produced some of the bigger black sunflower seeds although the flower heads are rather petite as well.

I've had several of these more petite yellow sunflower blossoms in my garden. These are from the plants that are not reaching the great heights of the other plants which produce the bigger and bolder blossoms.

In this combination petal sunflower blossom, you can see a mix of the warm colors with a hint of the yellow-orange as though the flower petals were spun and hit with the colors. This honestly feels like a painting to me.

With this last rather muted, yellow-orange colored sunflower blossom, we have now passed from the traditional yellow sunflower to the warm colors. Yet, this particular sunflower blossom is not quite as vivid in color as the Autumn Beauty Sunflowers that I have featured.

In the photo above, you can see the cycle of life and "death" with the beautiful bright yellow sunflower blossoms flourishing in the sunlight. And, to the left, those sunflowers which have seen their day and will be yielding their heads for the seeds of tomorrow!

I hope I have made you smile or maybe go "Ah!" and experience a little awe at the beauty of these sunflower blossoms. Maybe you have been inspired to try growing your own sunflower garden with Burpee Sunflower Seeds?
