Kate wanted to take pictures of the sunflower house yesterday when she was here. She is a novice photographer that can get some pretty good shots sometimes. She will aim and look in the viewfinder. If it doesn’t look good to her, she moves her position or moves her subject. I’m actually amazed at her. Here is her shot of our first sunflower bloom:
She took several pictures of the sunflower house. Some of them are excellent, especially for a five-year-old. Actually, they are excellent for an any-year-old!
I made her a front door and a back door this year. We had to get all the bird houses out and hang them around. Then the door bell was next. Add a chair and a little table to the mix, and the little house is starting to look like home.
Here is a look at some of Kate’s photographs. I love them! And she took all of the following pictures:
She tried to get a shot of this flower outside the “house,” but couldn’t get her angle right, so she said, “I think I can get this better on the inside.” So in she goes and then tells me to hold the sunflowers away from it so she can get a good shot. After she took the picture, she looked at the view and said, “That’s a good one.” I love when she does that!
The sunflowers still have a little bit of growing to do. Some will get taller than others giving the house a full look as well as a tall look. There are plenty of sunflowers left if anybody would like to bring a bucket of water and gather some for your own sunflower house. It doesn’t take a lot of room for one. Of course, there’s not a lot of room in them either.

I think Kate has some real talent! And that first picture of the sunflower is amazing. Do you use a point and shoot or a fancy camera?
It’s a Canon EOS30D, but I pretty much point and shoot. I would like to know more about it. That’s on next year’s to-do list. 🙂
Kate has done an excellent job taking pics. I am going to come to see the sunflower house and
maybe get me a start of sunflowers. Good job Kate……
Oh, do come and get some. I’ve transplanted some out by the front fence. They’re still droopy right now.
I remember when the boys were little and went through the sunflower house!!!
Brenda you are such a blessing to others. You help us create memories, that bring a smile when most needed!!! Love you for that and more!!!
Kate really does have some photography talent!!! Better get that studio ready for her!!
My gosh! It doesn’t seem like they were ever that small, does it? If Kate keeps taking photos, she just might be a real photographer some day. Wouldn’t that be neat? She could travel the world taking photos of all sorts of important events. 🙂
Love the pictures, love your site, and love you!
I planted sunflowers this year. I bought a packet of mixed ones. They are up.
can’t wait to see what they look like. Are they perennials? Hope so!
Kate is quite the photographer!!
Thank you, girlfriend. And I love you, too.
Gail, the heads will drop their seeds and you will have zillions next year unless you cut off the heads this fall. 🙂
