Little Sunflower

Growing in my garden, planted by "the birds"---- this one is only about 18 inches tall--- more will follow someday of the 10 feet tall variety.

Enjoy!
It seems the birds have done so--- eating the buds, leaves and stems even before the seeds happen--- think it is the cardinals who have been seen lurking around this garden patch!

Straight out of 'Bill and Ben, The Flowerpot Men', but I guess you may have to google that, Jennn.

Very appropriate for today, great POV; the colour really pops and of course the bokeh is brilliant.

For those not watching Wimbledon............. Murray is looking good!

Very sunny, Jenn, and the small ones are just as beautiful as the bigger ones.

'Our' birds have also planted a lot of sunflower, but even more wheat from the grease balls. You'd think they are telling me something about grain!

I love it when things come up unexpectedly. This year I found some campion that I hadn't planted. We always have a good crop of Black-eyed Susans that appear here and there.

I've got some of these coming up in my back yard - yes, most likely planted by those birds.
