How does your garden grow?

I love sunflowers and this year I've planted some lovely dwarf ones in my garden. There are quite a few in flower at the moment and there's still lots of buds so they should look good for a while yet.

Every time I look out of the kitchen window they remind me that it's summer (and we certainly needed reminding today!) and today they inspired me to use this image from The Stamping Boutique which I chose recently as a prize for being a challenge winner. I loosely followed a sketch I'd seen for a recent challenge but never got around to entering, probably because I forgot where it was LOL!!!

DP printed on my computer are from Zoe Pearn
