Happy Mondays: sunflower

This sunflower self-seeded and has thrived in our vegetable patch over summer. Although not the tallest sunflower at about 6½ feet, it still looks perfectly lovely enough to me. If you look closely you can see it's also popular today with two wasps and a ladybird amongst the visitors. The beauty of mother nature!

It's the sunflower season in the northern hemisphere. I am not the only City Daily Photo blogger to capture a sunflower this past week. See Red Pat in Toronto's post of a Giant Russian variety at:


  1. You just can't go past sunflowers for a bit of sunshine in a vase, and you're right Chrissy, that's a busy little spot!

  2. Sunflowers are really pretty right now but will soon fade. Not to worry though as the seeds mean bluejays and squirrels will soon be enjoying yummy treats and they are also fun to photograph!

  3. A huge and very pretty sunflower. Beautiful photo work.
