The Sunflower’s Babies

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Seems that their days of posing for pictures have been replaced by the need to work to produce seeds.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!

  1. Nature is totally incredible when you think about it. Over and over it produces the miracle of an enormous variety of plants and animals! (us included, though I sometimes have my doubts! :( ) Thanks for a lovely share, Jess. Happy weekend! :)

    • Hi. Thank you. I’m interested to see them turn completely to seed. The outer edges are starting. I can’t wait til the birds have a feast!! Our winter feeders are near the garden, too. :)

  2. Love nature and how she is always renewing. We need to get back to a more natural way of thinking. There will be some happy well fed birds this winter!!
    Love the photos!

    • I love your word “renewing”. That’s a great way to see it! We always have tons of birds in winter. Won’t they be surprised to see those extra seeds?!

      • They will love your seeds. Are you just going to leave them on the stalks or will you hand them up to dry out! I always opt for the “natural” way. Less work for meπŸ˜ƒ.
