The Music of Sunflowers


Last weeks sunflower has been fun to watch as it closed it's petals...it appears to be dancing
to see what it looked like open HERE


The odd thing is, the second flower on same stem, is the one below. the first one had 16 petals, this one has only 5. And the center is totally different.. same plant, and only 4 inches from the big one.
Strange...
 But I did have fun because Bob the Photo Bomber kept appearing in my pics, he is in all three in this collage, can you find the bomber?

Funny how the flowers on the one plant can look so different from one another. Funny how Bob turns up in so many photos.

Rose said...

Yep, I see him...aren't sunflowers just the most photogenic flower you ever saw???

Mildred said...

That is fun about the petals being different. Oh yes, I see Bob. Whenever I am preparing to take photos of a teapot, flower etc., here comes a cat. I always have to wait for said cat to snoop and see what I am up to before I can snap the picture!

Save the seeds and maybe the next batch will be bigger. They are pretty no matter how many petals they have.

I see him!

They are wonderful flowers. And you should use these to persuade Bob to pose properly instead of just lurking in the bakgrund ;)

It is interesting how two flowers on the same play can be so different.

Ann Thompson said...

Interesting how different the two are. I found Bob in two of the pictures but couldn't find him in the bottom right one

Oh my gosh, I just love, love, love your first image. I feel I can reach right through my computer screen and touch those delicate petals. You know, sometimes husbands just need to be the center of attention!! HaHa

Happy July to you and Bob! Beautiful sunflowers are so evocative of the season.

I love sunflowers. How strange that the second only had a few petals.

I saw his white head bobbing about. Interesting sunflower with few petals.

Love the photo bombs.
Also love the sunflowers and the differences in the blossoms.
I guess they are like us humans....all different but from the same stem.
