More About This Product

I bought a copy of Sharon Lovejoy's Sunflower Houses when my boys were preschoolers and we still lived in Los Angeles. This book, I'm sure, contributed to my longing to move to the country.

Several years later, after moving to a farm in Maine, we planted sunflower houses and green bean teepees, inspired by Sharon Lovejoy, a part-time resident of Maine herself.

Hiding out in the sunflower houses they grew from seed remain one of my boys' favorite childhood memories of summer!
