Sunflowers


More and more of the sunflowers look like this, rather than bright and cheery.

The flowers that are in full bloom

are smaller than last month's.

Good bird seeds. =)

It's sad to see sunflowers lose their petals, but it's nice to see that you still have some blossoms. The seeds should attract lots of birds.

Beautiful sunflowers on your blog.

We had one lone sunflower in the area of our long driveway. My son had planted some last year and one decided to revisit us. It just went last week. I like them ...

I have some sort of insect devastating my sunflowers. They don't produce seeds (for the finches) after this insect is finished. Frustrating.

I love sunflowers...they grow really well here in Texas..one year my Mom had some that the center was the size of a dinner plate....

I like it when the petals disappear, then you can harvest the seeds.

The earwigs got mine last year though...each head was a earwig condo, (ewwwwww) and though they looked good on the outside, every seed had been hollowed out from behind.

And all my pumpkins never got past the yellow flower stage....grrr.
