The Sidewalk Sunflowers have been interesting to watch.
Now, they're taller than me and blooming!
What I discovered when I pulled the flower down to look at it was that there were 3 honey bees covered in pollen working over that bloom. I tried to get a photo of them after retrieving the camera from my wonderful husband, but they had gone on to another bloom.
These sunflowers are growing in a crack in the sidewalk. They've only gotten water when it's rained. It hasn't rained in quite a while. It's been over 100 degrees a lot. The wind has felt like a hair dryer.
I guess I shouldn't be surprised that sunflowers do so well here with no help from me.
They are growing in The Sunflower State.
