Sunflowers

I love sunflowers. Loads of them sprout each year all around the yard and I have such a hard time pulling any out. This year I gave lots away so that we wouldn't be overrun with them as they tend to shade other things in the garden. Somehow though I still ended up with lots.
I can forgive them for shading other things(although not my tomatoes) when I see things like this though.

I love sunflowers too - we planted some at each corner of our garden - they're up but no blooms yet...

Heather, just awesome photos!

Do you know what type of bird is that?

Sunflowers are incredible flowers.

Hi Carol

When I saw it I was thinking it was an American goldfinch. I need to have a good look through our bird book.

I want to know what kind of bird, too. I saw some like that in our cottonwoods yesterday.

Hey, are our backyards adjoining? I have the exact same sunflowers in my yard! How funny is that?
