Sunflower Study

My two oldest kids have their own little garden patches this year. I bought everything in seed for them...wanted them to have the experience of planting the seed, watching it sprout, etc. It's been so fun!

Each of them chose a sunflower variety to plant. Ben wanted the "red" sunflower shown here:

Such neat colors! He was rewarded for his choice by getting the first blossoms.

Clara chose the gigantic variety. No, "gigantic" probably isn't it's real name, but it should be! The things are...gigantic! Hey it's late, and I'm tired...gigantic is all I can come up with tonight.

They stand probably 10 feet tall, and are just starting to look like real sunflowers.
I like this shot...the sky was bright and went white on me, and it seems to me like the flower is almost winking at me!

The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:12
