Yesterday was a gloriously hot sunny september day...the kind we've been yearning for all summer. My sunflowers are looking quite majestic, especially with the sun backlighting their leaves and petals, making them glow.
These photos are all taken through the rather grubby glass of my little conservatory - the only possible place that had the right vantage point.
Note: get out the vinegar for some serious window cleaning!
There's something about sunflowers that makes me smile - they just look so happy and have a simple almost child-like quality. And they're so easy to grow. I particularly like these dark rusty colours - I think the variety was 'Earth Walker'...or maybe 'Velvet Queen'... or both. I forgot to label them.
