The Violet Fern

A Colorful Tale of a Garden in the Making

The Sun Nods Winter Goodbye


Each time I look into my garden out back I can’t help but think these sunflowers, piled high with snow, are nodding winter goodbye. The last of their leaves even wave goodbye.

Bye bye winter, bye bye.

  1. Amen and goodbye! Your sunflower heads look HUGE!

  2. A unique perspective not seen much around here…although, they are calling for snow here tomorrow night!

  3. Thank you for taking the time to comment. I always leave my sunflowers up for the birds – there's not many seeds left. Some of these were Mammoth sunflowers. It is amazing how big they grow from seed in just one season.

  4. Hi TVH, these photos are amazing, I have never seen anything like them. The sunflowers are wearing little snow caps! And I also really like the Feb. pics, of river, garden and painting. It must feel very liberating when the snow melts and winter ends. cheers, cm

Thank you for joining me in the making of my garden!
