I couldn't resist posting some of these wonderful sunflowers as this week's Bloom of the Week, although I can't pretend I have one in my vase.

I've never been very successful at growing sunflowers in my shady garden, but the farmers are growing them in abundance in France where we have just spent a lovely family holiday.

I hope you're having a good week.
