Celebrating the Sunflower

Lovely sunflowers are  blooming in my garden. The seed head forms a circle composed of disk flowers crowded together. A single sunflower head hosts hundreds of tiny flowers called florets.

  1. I really, really like this-Sunflowers are among my favorites and the little florets remind me of tiny stars-so, really how can you go wrong with this flower?! 😉 Thanks for a great day brightener on this dull Monday morning-

    • Thank you so much for your positive comment on my sunflower picture. This is the second year I’ve planted them, but really the first time I’ve taken a close look at the little florets and how many different intricacies they have!
