Unusual Sunflower Bloom Structure!

This year I have well over 200 sunflower blooms in the garden–yellow, red, red-yellow, Honey Bears, Great Russians, etc.

One bloom in particular has fascinated me by its Structure …

Petals in the middle of the bloom???

A Sunflower Bronx Cheer??

If anyone can explain it PLEASE DO!!  Gardeners…PLEASE answer!!

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge–Ooh Shiny!

This week we are asked to submit photos to illustrate what distracts us. Specifically, we are asked “…what is guaranteed to distract you? What is your “Ooh, shiny! ”?

For me the list of distractions is too long….and ever growing!

But I offer two recent images from Bodega Head captured while we were on a hike in the area…

Yup,  what you are seeing are people descending the cliff…with no climbing gear….

Clearly distracting but capturing our full attention

To get a full perspective of  height and size of the cliff, go to Bodega Head…A Slippery Slope 🙂 ?

 

Elemental…Sunflower Groves

The WordPress Photo Challenge this week is elemental wherein we are invited to explore “…the elements of earth, air, water, and fire through the landscapes that surround us…or, more personally, is there a place you go to feel connected to the earth?”

I offer what, for me, is elemental at this time of the year in our gardens…my home at home 🙂
