sunflower number 3

details of sunflower number 3
how many seeds will it produce?

this is the old picture of
the mother Sunflower 
 featured in September 12, 2009 which ended up with 35 seeds


I have been taking pictures of  our sunflowers as they are about to bloom. When the yellow petals open up and expose those little florets,
we are coming to the climax of sunflower blooming.
The ecstasy  begins here.

  6. They are so beautiful! Must overcome my phobia to grow these(I hate those caterpillars). Hope they seed well for you.

  7. What a wonderful series of photos! Sunflowers are one of the exception to the 'no flowers' rule on my patch because they attract bees to the garden.

  8. Sunflowers have to be one of the most cheerful flowers on this planet! Just looking at them makes me feel like smiling. Unfortunately I never get to seethe climatic moments of its blooming... the parrots get to them before that and rip them up for the seeds :(

  12. Thanks friends, bloggers and gardeners.

    There is a sense of happiness behind each sunflower. The colour, the roundness, the size, its towering character, all add up to its glamour.
