Blue Sunflower Vase

On returning from a recent trip to a sunflower farm, I came home to make an arrangement. Those sunflowers look a lot bigger at home than they do out in the field. This is the biggest vase I have!






Actually this vase was perfect. See those blue sunflowers on it?

I love the combination of blue and white and the yellow of the sunflowers make a stunning look. Sunflowers remind me of a busy body neighbor ( that might just be a southernism) whom I liked very much but was into other people's business too much. She went around the neighborhood sprinkling sunflower seeds in several neighbor's gardens. When sunflowers came up in mine, she told me that she planted them. I was a little annoyed with her even if I did like sunflowers. Heehee.

Your blue and white ginger jar is such a classic piece and it looks so good with the sunflowers. Love that blue, white and yellow combination.

The blue and white vase is perfect for the sunflowers. I know what you mean about them looking bigger once they are in the house...even the ones that grow wild along the roadside are always make a much larger bouquet once I get them inside.

I love sunflowers! Sometimes I just stick them in old wine bottles and place them around the house. Only one flower fits in the bottle but I like the simple look of it. Yours are gorgeous!

Oh, Pat! They look so pretty! You just brought me back to my childhood! My Dad had a cousin that owned fields full of sunflowers and he used to take us once in a while on a Sunday morning to visit and he would let me pick the sunflowers that I wanted! They look so pretty in your vase!

Love the jar and lid most and then the yellow sunflower is a beautiful contrast to go in the vase. Lovely pictures, love the one with the flower on the table and the lid and small bit of the vase. Great job.
