Sunflowers On Main Street


 I found these cheery, yellow sunflowers blooming on Main Street,
in a pretty little town near me.


And around on the corner on 5th Street, too. 


I sure do love sunflower time of year!

  2. I also love sunflowers and I have one that comes up each summer. Next summer I am going to plant the giant sunflowers - birds love them also.
    Thanks for sharing - they always look so happy.

    1. Some varieties are really tall. And others (like the wild sunflowers that are our state flower) are shorter and have several blooms per stem.
