Red on a Sunflower

My cousin, Enita, sent me this photo. Isn't it a sight for sore eyes? I'm so growing lots of sunflowers this summer. 

Hey! I'm trying to eat. 
Could you point that thing somewhere else?

I love growing sunflowers. They are a sure sign of summer and its fun to see the birds enjoy them.

I am starting to get the gardening itch.

Okay I will rank this as my favorite for the week. Kudos to your cousin for a wonderful picture.

Wonderful photo. I grow sunflowers every year. They the perfect flower to winter over every year because the finches love to eat their seeds in the late fall.

Congratulations for this place, Kelly, it is wonderful, great photos and very interesting.
Thanks to all for the comments to my pic. It was a miracle to see the bird so near and to be able to take the pic.

Have a wonderful Sunday.
