My big, beautiful sunflowers are drooping down. They're ok! The flower heads have done their job and now their seeds are ripening. 🌻 πŸŒ±πŸ“· #plantandshoot #inspiremyinstagram #backyardgarden #gardener #garden #gardenlife #gardenerslife #gardenphotography #gardenersofinstagram #gardenblogger #sunflowers #seedsaving

Walking through the garden snipping Black-eyed Susan seed heads. These perennials are prolific self-sowers, but I want to save some seeds for a few special garden friends. πŸ˜‰ πŸŒ±πŸ“· #plantandshoot #inspiremyinstagram #backyardgarden #gardener #garden #gardenlife #gardenerslife #gardenphotography #gardenersofinstagram #gardenblogger #blackeyedsusan #seedsaving #gardenfriends

What you see here is Coronation Gold Yarrow that has set seed. Late summer is the perfect time to harvest seeds once the flowers have dried out. I find it's best to let the flowers dry out on the plant. Use shears to gently cut the stems and drop them into a container. This Friday's blog post will discuss how to collect the seeds. πŸŒ±πŸ“· #plantandshoot #inspiremyinstagram #backyardgarden #gardener #garden #gardenlife #gardenerslife #gardenphotography #gardenersofinstagram #gardenblogger #yarrow #seedsavers

My flowering Lantana is a magnet for bees. I have it growing in containers along our driveway because it likes full sun and thrives with little moisture - which is good since I often forget to water them! πŸŒ±πŸ“· #plantandshoot #inspiremyinstagram #backyardgarden #gardener #garden #gardenlife #gardenerslife #gardenphotography #gardenersofinstagram #gardenblogger #lantana #lantanacamara

My Red Racer trial tomatoes need to be potted up. I'll be adding @ecoscraps fertilizer to each pot for a nutrient boost.

I see why this sunflower is called Mammoth Grey! This is what you consider a giant variety - normally growing 10ft tall with a flower head as big as a dinner plate! I received the seeds last year in @brunettefarmette's seed swap.🌻 #plantandshoot #sunflowers #mammothsunflower
