Little Sunflower

By taggart  
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.

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!

'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.
