Not Yet Open

My friend snapped this shot of sunflower which was nearly ready to bloom, but not open yet. Love this! I have never taken a photo of a sunflower before it opened… not sure why because it is amazing!

  1. I love sunflowers, but have not been successful in growing them. This is great! Hope your ankle is doing better.

      They grow easily in the wild, but when I plant them in yard they always need lots of water. They did not do well in our drought last summer. One of our friends in Montana has lovely ones in veggie garden!

  2. That is really pretty. I’ve grown dozens of giant sunflowers with my dad in the past but I don’t think I ever saw it like that before it opened.

      I have never noticed them or thought to take photo when they are at this stage. I love how they look!! Thanks for dropping by!

  3. Wow, it is beautiful closed as well as in bloom. What a lovely photograph! There is something very bright, fresh and cheery about this wonderful image.

  4. That is a cool picture. Our sunflowers are still just small seedlings!
