Sunflower


The whole day hubby and I stayed at the farm of my step-son and they had this huge sunflower it's 7 feet tall! I should took a short ladder, climb up and put my hand in the middle of the sunflower so everybody could see and  have an idea how big it is^_^ But by just looking at the leaves I guess everybody could have an idea how big is this plant.

Oooo I just love your giant sunflower ShadowShot. That's the way a sunflower is supposed to be.

I planted some and the goofy things didn't get taller than 6inches!! And their flowers are all shriveled and ugly(see my 7/31 1st photo--the sunflowers are on the far left under the hanging tomato--very sad)

Funny...I was just thinking this morning how I need to post a sunflower shot for SSS while it is still summer! I took one a coupla weeks back but haven't posted it. I LOVE yours! The birds,I'm sure, are looking forward to getting at that seed head!

Gorgeous pic! The little insect you caught hovering just above the flower gives good perspective for size...
