    Yeah!! Stunning! 😀😀 we have a very small sunflower in our garden, half killed by drought as I was away – every time I look at it I think of your giant spectacular one!

      Maybe they’re long lost cousins!

      Hi Debra. Thank you so much! We’ve been having the best time watching those flowers. As soon as we see petals, I’m out the door with step stool in hand.

      Saturday night I got to witness an amazing sunset via that step stool. Then, a hummingbird flew right up, saw me, then took off. Don’t think he was expecting a human at 8 feet up! :)

        I bet that little hummer was surprised! Be careful up there. Enjoying the cooler days! So pretty here I’m ready for an early fall.

          Oh good. I’m glad it’s cooler for you. My husband said the heat is supposed to come back for us next week. I bet you and Champ are ready for cool to stick around.

    I can’t believe you got pictures as it unfolded. I love that early one, showing the unfurling.

      Hi. Thank you. Just kept my eye on it. They change so much in one day and even day to day. I can see them out my kitchen window and as soon as I saw yellow I ran out there. It’s so fun to watch them. There’s 2 open now and a 3rd getting close. They work so hard from a tiny seed. Pretty neat. Thanks so much for commenting. :)

      That’s really nice of you to say! Thanks so much! :)

      Hi. Thank you. :)

      Hi there! Thank you so much. I’ve had a great time out there trying to capture their beauty. One of my kitties was on the step stool between my feet!

    Wow, your photography is stunning! I’m blown away by those photos!!

    • Jessica August 18, 2016 / 7:55 am

      Holy moly!! “Thank you” is too small of a reply for your comment. How about: wow, I can’t tell you what it means to me that you think my photography is stunning and that you’re blown away?!?!
