For Be Careful With My Heart fans like me, sunflowers are the flowers Sir Chief gave Maya on their first date. Not a common ‘date’ flower, isn’t it? Who would have thought!

Seeing that ‘kilig’ episode made me remember how I loved this flower when I was a kid.

Recently, I finally managed to do what I have been wanting to do for a while, take a photo of sunflowers for my other blog, and the same time, buy sunflower plants.

I got two from Dangwa and it cost Php 150.00 each. I found myself in the area one morning and remembered that I wanted to buy sunflowers.


Then, another two at one of the stalls selling flowers and other ornamental plants inside the Quezon Memorial Circle. It cost me Php 75.00 each for the second two plants.

      The same with me Fe, every time I see one, it reminds me of those episodes. Prior to watching BCWMH, I even bought a sunflower wallpaper that I used to layer a cabinet and now it reminds me of the show too! πŸ™‚

    Ms A thank you for creating this blog. I Google and found this “Sunflowers turn to follow the sun. Their open faces symbolize the sun itself, conveying warmth and happiness, adoration and longevity.” This coming summer I’ll make sure sunflowers will be part of my garden.

      Go for it! For sure it will liven up your garden. Me too, I’m planning to plant more sunflowers, aside from my other favorite, bougainvillea, in our place in the province! The four I bought are here in our house in the city. Thanks a lot for checking this blog too. πŸ™‚

      Thank you also chasalva. You have been away a long time. So many changes, even in the provinces. Hopefully all are for good. One of my aims for this blog is to write about everyday stuffs, useful ones or like in BCWMH, focus on stuffs that we don’t notice anymore or are at the back of our minds na lang. Hope you will like this site too. πŸ™‚

      Thank you day630 for the support. Yes, springtime is a good time. I remember watching a friend, and helping a bit, plant tulips naman. Nice time. Sunflowers are such happy flowers that it would be nice to have several to welcome the spring. πŸ™‚

      Thank you very much, Emy. And that is true, BCWMH bound us all in a very wonderful way. Because of the show, I also checked out Quezon Memorial Circle before and had learned to appreciate the park since then! πŸ™‚

      You should, Elvie. Nakaka-happy. As far as I could remember, it is easy to take care of sunflowers. I remembered scattering sunflowers seeds when I was a kid and the flowers just grew all over the place. πŸ™‚

    Thank you A for sharing. I see sunflower as a powerful flower that has all its briliance and sharp yellow color that stand up beautifully among other flowers.
