Garden Bloggers' Muse Day: Ah! Sunflower

Sunflowers at Kellaways with William Blake's poem

I couldn't resist another visit to the sunflower field at Kellaways after my recent Weekend Wandering there. The first four lines of William Blake's poem are the perfect sentiment to accompany our return and you can read the full poem here.


  1. Most apt words to accompany your beautiful photo which is bringing the sun shining in on a dull day here. Happy August to you VP. Hope that it's a sunny one.

    1. Thanks Anna - they've bought plenty of sunshine to people in Chippenham too.

  2. I've never yet seen a field of sunflowers. I feel something is missing from my life.

    1. Looks like they're becoming a popular crop Lucy, so you may get the chance yet! I used to grow a big patch of them on my allotment, it was lovely seeing the birds feed on them :)

  3. Lovely picture and poem. xx
