Welcome!

Welcome to the Frog Hollow Farm blog! I've been blogging since January 2010 and have switched from Blogger to Word Press, but I'm back to Blogger because, for me, it's easier to use. My husband and I live on a little farm in Northwest New Jersey. We have some chickens and a very large vegetable garden with asparagus and raspberries, and rows and rows of sunflowers, snapdragons and zinnias. Traveling, entertaining, gardening, spending time with family, studying Italian, blogging and reading keep us busy and happy. With all of this going on, moving towards a simpler life seems almost impossible but it's definitely a daily goal.

Sunflowers and Summer Sunday #6


Summer and sunflowers, the perfect combination.  I just love these magnificent flowers!  We have several varieties here at Frog Hollow Farm, with colors that range from lemony yellow to a russet burgundy.  The volunteers from last summer are flowering first, with the remainder of the flowers ready to blossom in the next week or so. 


I'm linked over to The Tablescaper's Summer Sunday - please take a minute to stop by and browse through all of the wonderful summer inspirations.

Ciao, bella!!

  1. Beautiful, sunflowers are very cheerful flowers! My volunteers from last year have faded, I took the heads down to the creek for the critters the other day. Happy Sunday!

  2. What lovely sunflowers! They are so happy aren't they. I love little volunteers. I have a nice pumpkin volunteer this year that I hope does well. Enjoy your gorgeous flowers this lovely Sunday.

  10. Hello friend....your sunflowers are so beautiful. I have a large painting done of a single flower some years and it is still my absolute favorite piece of art I own. The sunflower is such a regal flower and such a survivor!!!!

  14. Thank you so much, for stopping by my blog, over th weekend and leaving a comment. We did have a fun chat over there, didn't we? :-)

    Your sunflowers are lovely, but I've never seen russet burgundy ones! Oh my, they must be magnificent!

    And back to the "blogging" topic I had this weekend... Me too, I get tired of making comments in a blog, when that blogger never comes over to mine, and never comments anything. And I feel I have a right to feel this way. -pout- I'm not as nice as you are, with your saying; "Oh well..." :-)

    Ahhhhh the subject of how we blog and how we comment and how we read blogs, and on and on and on. It never wears out, as a topic. Maybe because blogging is always evolving. And new bloggers are always showing up, to "join the party." Which is just super!!!

  15. Hello FHFG! This is my first comment on your blog. I love it! Great photos and recipes. Sunflowers, along with lilacs, are my favorites. I love bringing a big bouquet of them to dinner parties - they always stand out. Of course, a bottle of wine with them doesn't hurt either. I am hoping to grow a long row of them in the back of our hay field next year. Thanks for following my new blog - hope you like it.

  16. Hi Bella, I tried to post the Bea button on here but it wont let me because of the HTML Tags. If you go to my page, you can grab the new code. You'll notice that I also changed it a little. The colors should fit in better with your page and it's a little bit smaller. I hope it works for you. I'll keep playing with the size and see if I can get it even smaller!

    Hope you like it!

    Cindy~
