I see what Steras saying Lori...but so attractive the shaggy sunflowers. I did enjoy painting one in Art class in summer.. Hope you did well...

Yes, I see what you mean Stera... whistful and whispy! He would have preferred more rain than he received..but after the brutal heat we finally received some rain and he's come along. Poor whispy fella!
When ever I see sunflowers, Janey, I think of the van Gogh series. So many sides to such a simple flower..and so animated as their faces follow the sun though the daily arc. I tried a photo of him on a rainy dull day and he stood looking east.. the other way...confused when the sun broke through to the west!

They're almost like a creature Lori, especially when they grow above us, looking down...

I used to have a story about a man who was unkind to children who wanted to play in his garden. The sunflowers all grew tendrils, wrapped them round the man - he was called Jasper - and lifted him up off the ground. Wish I could remember the ending, but watch out Lori...
