Sunflower Joy





Over the last week, I have taken great pleasure and delight in wathching this magnificent sunflower open up to the world. They are truely amazing flowers and so so happy to have around the place. Just as an aside, I didn't actually plant it!!! It just popped up outside the chook fence.

What a delight! Here in my part of Texas, it is cold and rainy and dreary. That sunflower was a welcome ray of sunshine. Thank you!

Fabulous step by step pics of the sunflower - I didn't plant mine either - they grew from the sunflower seeds in the mixed seed I put on my bird table - isn't nature wonderful?
