It's cold in Alabama



The weather man down the road from us reported 5 degrees on their farm this morning.
Thought a sunflower might make us feel better.
This lady was 12+ feet tall and that sunflower is almost 2 feet in diameter.

So pretty against the blue sky!
I think the whole country has been having extremely cold weather. It's been below zero here most of the week with wind chills between -25 and -30 degrees. Today we are having a blizzard.

Wow ! What a beautiful sunflower !

Thank you Amy!! I would like to be somewhere warm right now but your sunflower cheered me up!

Brian King said...

Holy cow! That's one big sunflower! Gorgeous!

We had a crispy 20 degree here today! Hopefully this is the coldest we will get this winter.

Crazy silly weather, it was so cold here, they shut down the schools yesterday. A bit warmer today, but blustery and the wind is blowing around what already fell, and still more is coming down! Happy winter to us all right?!

Wow - that is some sunflower - it does make the grey, rainy day here a lot brighter.

That's one huge sunflower! It's all a matter of perspective, but 5 degrees sounds fine to me. We've had a mild winter so far, but had -20 to -30 for several days, and when it got above zero today we were happy.

Hi Amy, this photo is beautiful! I raised my first real garden last summer and I had one that measured 17 inch across. They are so much fun to raise. It's like you can almost watch them grow :) I do hope that you are holding up in your cold temperatures and that they don't hurt your next years crops. On the bright side, these cold days might make for less bugs next summer. I haven't visited in a long time and just wanted to stop over and say hi, and invite you to join in on my three year blogging birthday Give-A-Way. It is not much but it is handmade :)
Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

Wow, that's the biggest sunflower ever! My feet are freezing as I type this, but we're not even close to being as cold as y'all are. Yikes!

Beautiful sunflower!
Thanks for your comment on my blog - we are neighbors! I live in Prentiss county MS, out in the country, not really close to anything. We have friends in Florence and Savannah so we are often in AL and TN.
My Leukemia doctor in Tupelo sent me to Vanderbilt for some tests to determine what was the best follow-up care. My Leukemia is in remission, but could return at any time. Vandy's Dr. Greer recommends a stem cell transplant, the only cure. But it is a physically demanding procedure with a lot of risk. I'm undecided about it.
I hope your husband is doing well. My husband and I were very impressed with Vanderbilt. Twice the doctor himself has called me to give me my test results, instead of just telling a nurse to call me.
Have a great week-end!
Lea
