Sunflowers

The sunflowers are still in various stages of blooming.


Some are still opening up, and others probably won't open before they get frosted.


The first flowers to open are getting fat with seed.


Some have personality.


Friendly little guys!

Yellow!

Well, this weekend is as yellow as it gets for this year.


Less yellow than years past, but still not a bad show.


I'll just leave you with a few shots.



Enjoy!

Sunflowers Labor Day

The sunflowers are about midway in the blooming, I'd say.


I still think that next weekend is going to be more yellow, overall, but there will be many sunflowers out there that are past their prime.


We have pockets of flowers that are all opened up now, but many yet to come.


The bees are happy.  Every time I see a bee on a sunflower, I think that the camouflage is so perfect, that bees were just designed with sunflowers in mind.


This is still my favorite stage of "opening."  Fresh, new, and not yet chewed on by bugs.


But this isn't bad, either.
