My Sunflowers Finally Bloomed

Sunflowers are beautiful flowers known for their ability to grow facing towards the sun, and like most people, I like them. My family and I don’t have green thumbs by any means, but a friend of ours gave us three starter plants. The one we thought was the healthiest died early – my hunch is by a crafty chipmunk stealing the defenseless flower’s petals. The other two are now starting to bloom, attracting the local community of insects. Here are a few images depicting a typical day in the life of a sunflower that I took today.

“Sunflowers end up facing the sun, but they go through a lot of dirt to find their way there.” ― J.R. Rim
