One Flower, But A Nice One!
All the sunflowers I planted this year from old seeds appeared to be all yellow, so this one surprised me. It almost looks like a painting. This lone sunflower is the only thing blooming in my entire garden. Even the Orange Bells have given up--highly unusual--as normally they do very well in summer. This year seems extra hot, maybe because we had a fairly cool June, if you call upper 90s cool. Monday evening it rained all around us, but I didn't get a drop. Something has to give soon, or this will be the driest year I remember!
