Sunflowers are some of my favorite summer visitors!
Seriously, it’s just about impossible to see one and not smile.
My Goldfinches, who like to pick the petals to partake of the seeds, agree that their appearance is most welcome!
And this year was especially delightful because not only did we have our traditional yellow sunflowers, but we had some radiant red ones pop up as well!
The bees seem quite smitten with this variety, as am I!
Ahhh…if painting were in my skill-set I would be rushing out to buy a canvas for this beauty is surely worth some brushstrokes!
