Sunflowers, I just love 'em
I can't resist at least one post each summer dedicated to my favorite flower. I just love everything about them -- Their size: so large they look almost comical in contrast to my manicured shrubs -- their color: some very yellow, some with red highlights, some more ochre and brown -- their shape: round and happy and symmetrical -- their seeds: that attract and feed the summer birds and bees.
In my garden they grow whereever the birds drop them out of the feeders, so I never quite know when or where or how many I'll have.
This is the last of them for this summer, brightening my dining room table.
