I didn't know sunflowers did this - they must be very fit with all the turning around! magnificent photos, I know it's a cliche but I think of it as a sea of gold.

Shady Love the field of sunflowers. So Bright and cheery.

Grace said...

This is just breathtaking! I bet the bees are loving it.

Hi catmint, Isn't that an interesting thing to learn about sunflowers?

Hi Rosemary! :-)

I agree, Grace. I wish you could see it in "real life!"

Sissy said...

Hiya Shady,
You have a fieldful of those glorious flowers? How terrific. All yours, to harvest, look t and photograph.
They are not called tournesol for nothing.

Hi Jo! Isn't this a striking phenomenon? :-)

I'd love my own sunflower field! They're gorgeous...and such happy flowers! :)

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Liz, They're beautiful. I hear they've become "frazzled" after such a long, terribly hot, dry spell...

MBBR-MEDIA said...

I never realized they turned in the evening to be ready for the AM sun! We have fields here as well but it's been a long time since I stopped to photograph them. Sorry about that now after seeing your photos! They are such a happy sight.

Jan@Thanks for today. said...

Wow, what a beautiful field of sunflowers! I guess I never realized they turned their heads like that--thanks for pointing that out! I haven't seen a field of sunflowers like that anyplace around here...it's awesome. Thanks for stopping by and saying hi. It's been too long. Hope you guys get some rain real soon;-)

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Kathleen, I remember those fields of sunflowers... it's been quite awhile since I've been to Colorado (My LOSS!). Yep, you'll have to take your camera the next time you take a drive!

Thanks, Jan. :-)
