Sunflowers in a Vase

I have been enjoying many beautiful sunflowers in a vase thanks to the stormy weather that has visited Jacksonville, Florida in the past week or so. Normally, the weather seems to determine what actual blossoms make it to one of my many vases.

The first vase of sunflowers were the bright yellow orange blossoms from Kiss My Sunflower. It was sad to see these flowers get taken out by the wind and rain. I, quite frankly, wasn't ready for those particular sunflowers to end their lives on the stem! The positive is that we all get to enjoy those beautiful sunflower blossoms in the artsy sunflower photo!
Luckily, I captured the story of Kiss My Sunflower on a series of greeting cards. That was before the weather took out those lovely blossoms and they ended up in my cat vase!

With another day of even stronger winds, along with plenty of rain and some hail, brought us to more colorful blossoms. I added those additional blossoms to the cat vase. Isn't that a beautiful sunflower photo?

The Laurel Burch Cat Ceramic Vase is used to hold the larger blossoms. I had to hunt around the house to find enough vases to hold all the cut sunflowers.

That pale green ceramic vase is one of my collectibles from my grandma Julia Nagy. It sports the Hungarian Coat of Arms on the side of the vase.

The sunflowers look rather glossy in the photo above. I put the cut blossoms into a tub of tepid water to soak off the dirt and any little bugs that they might have picked up from the flower bed.

I put one of the yellow sunflower blossoms into a flat orange pumpkin dish that I got from Pampered Chef.

There were a lot of sunflower blossoms that didn't make it to a vase but were put at the back of my yard for the birds to enjoy.

I hope you have enjoyed my various photos of sunflowers in a vase. It's really something to think that all of these came from little seeds ... Burpee Sunflower Seeds!
