Tiger's Eye Mix Sunflower Variety

September 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, I am featuring Part#1 of the TIGER'S EYE MIX variety.  Back in high school I was fascinated with tigers - I even made a lithograph/etching print of a tiger seen from the vantage point of someone looking out their window (we had an amazing art program at our high school)  See photo below - It's called "On The Prowl" (I did this in the twelfth grade).  Also, a few years ago I did a series on the Toledo Zoo - this is the post that features the Tiger (click HERE to view that post).

Since this package of seeds was a "mix" - the variance of color and shape are vast.  The pictures on the cover of the seed packet all had a furry middle (circle) and that must be how this variety was named "Tiger's Eye".  (When the sunflower is young, that "furry" characteristic is not yet developed - as you will notice in some of the pictures below).

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.
