ROUGE ROYALE Sunflower Variety

ROUGE ROYALE Sunflower Variety

September and early October is SUNFLOWER Season here in God's Growing Garden.  Every year, during the month of September (and sometimes going into October), I feature the sunflower varieties that I grew during the summer.  I grew 5 different sunflower varieties this year but one of them didn't germinate, so I will only be featuring 4 varieties in the Sunflower Series of 2022.  Today is the final post in this series for 2022.  I am featuring: ROUGE ROYALE variety.  This variety is truly stunning and looks as if there is a light behind the middle part of each flower.  It really does look like it has a self powered light.  I also get an "Art Nouveau" feel from this flower's color combinations.


Before showing the featured pictures, I realized that after 11 years of featuring sunflowers I have never explained why they are my favorite flower.  Sunflowers always turn towards the sun - you can literally see them gently turning throughout the day to follow the sun.  To be very clear - I am NOT a "sun" worshiper.  However, I am a "Son" worshiper:  Jesus Christ The Son of God and I strive every day to grow and turn towards Him in every aspect of my life.
  
ENJOY the following pictures!

All photos were taken by me (Angie Ouellette-Tower) and the sunflowers were all grown in my garden.

The photo below was taken on a very windy day and it's almost as if you can see the movement of the sunflowers in the sun ray swooshes:
