Van Gogh Sunflowers

Van Gogh sunflower seeds inspire a garden party for August.

I planted two dozen Van Gogh sunflowers seeds from Renee’s Garden today. The flowers are very reminiscent of the type of sunflowers Vincent Van Gogh painted. Particularly if you look at the painting “Twelve Sunflowers” that he did. And that got me thinking.

Why not throw a garden party for my artist friends in August when the flowers are blooming?

We can have lunch and afterwards everyone can set up their easels in the garden and paint the sunflowers.  A tribute to Van Gogh.

  1. Update: As of 5/24 only five of the 24 seeds germinated. I have about 9 more seeds, I will sow those today.
    I transplanted the five survivors in an Earthbox to grow them on. In this way, they will be protected, get plenty of water and fertilizer and – hopefully – blooms their little hearts out.
