Maximilian Sunflowers

Maximilian Sunflowers are one of the last wildflowers to bloom in the fall.

Recently, I spent an evening with them while the sun slipped away.

I look forward to seeing them bloom every year, but it’s bittersweet because soon cold winter winds will come.

Maybe they are the last to bloom so the fresh memory of them will help keep us warm when the snow flies.

Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    I never knew the name of these sunflowers but they were my Dad’s favorite flower. He passed away in July at the age of 90 and I used sunflowers on his casket but I couldn’t get across to the flower shop what these sunflowers looked like……what a regal name for a beautiful flower.

  3. It is so nice to have these beautiful sunflowers blooming right up until frost.

    Hi Suzanne, I love the Autumn sunflowers! I happen to have a few late blooming sunflowers in my yard, but the reason they are so late to bloom is because I didn’t plant the seeds until mid-June.
    I’m loving this awesome Kansas weather lately!

      The farmers around here don’t plant their field sunflowers until mid June either so you weren’t late, you were in keeping with farmers. 🙂

    They look so happy and bright. I just really love the last photo, very very beautiful. A work of art, girl.

    Come late January, you can pull these pictures up and feel all that warmth just spreading all over you!! They sure are pretty.

    Very nice! I had no idea there were different ones out there. I kinda like these better than the great big ones.

    Georgeous as always! I secretly wish summer would stick around. I don’t like Winter, but I know it’s necessary.
