Wild Sunflowers

There are half a dozen types of wild sunflowers, and I do not have them figured out.
These are the ones that grow around here.
This year, I am fascinated with the buds...
I am linking this post with Nature Footstep Blo Ma

Every time I see them, I go, sunflowers .. maybe the color or just the size but still, I've always been in awe.

They make me smile :) And the buds are pieces of art.
Lovely.
Have a nice evening

We've got several varieties of those confusing yellow flowers too. Hard to sort them all out.

Such sturdy, brave flowers. :-) They grow in the sidewalks here in Minneapolis, and I always smile when I see them...
