Hooray for Sunflowers and Seeds of Hope

Do you have favorite flowers?

Sunflowers from my garden

Sunflowers are some of mine! I’ve grown them in my garden for many years, so a sunflower maze near Eau Claire caught my attention and when I learned it also funded cancer research, I just had to visit.

The maze and vast field of sunflowers is known as Seeds of Hope. It is a tribute to Babbette, whose valiant struggle with Multiple Myeloma ended in 2014. She dreamed of a world without cancer and after her death, her family started Seeds of Hope to help fund hospitals, research and to support those suffering from cancer.  I’d like share the link for Seeds of Hope (http://www.babbettesseedsofhope.com/) and, of course, thirteen pictures that reflect my experience there.

  1. Wow! That’s impressive.

  2. I do love sunflowers, although I must admit I wrote a poem about them about not growing them in which one stanza said: I don’t grow sunflowers
    They’re too dramatic
    Easy targets
    of nature’s wrath

    They hang like skulls
    in suicide nooses
    in garden graveyards
    for Halloween

  3. Those are great. I like sunflowers, too. Iris tends to be my favorite flower but they are not around long. I lost my mother to pancreatic cancer. She was 56. I am 53 now. Not so old.

  4. found a biggee on a gardening site tio always make us happy

  5. I’ve heard of plenty of corn mazes in the area, but did not know there was one made of sunflowers. What a unique idea — and probably not as creepy as some of the corn ones. Mine

  6. I’d heard of corn mazes, too, but this was my first sunflower maze. I would have visited it even if they’d called it a sunflower garden though.
