Earlier this week we were in the back yard and Little Bit asked me if I could water the sunflowers.
I turned around to see that their beautiful blooms were hanging heavy, looking towards the ground.
Seems that their days of posing for pictures have been replaced by the need to work to produce seeds.
I’ve been keeping an eye on them and watching them change. The petals are drying up some and falling to the grass leaving a small bit of yellow.
I love how nature knows it’s job and just gets it done.
A few minutes ago, I walked out there and got the biggest surprise!
In the crooks of the stems, where the leaves grow, the sweetest little flowers are blooming!
The sunflower’s babies.
