Flowers With Dory

We're still stumbling around in the flowers and joining Dory in Flower Friday!

On these next 2 I couldn't decide which pic I liked best.

More sunflowers . . .My big one lost all but 2 pedals (so far).  Apparently the bumble isn't phased.

Close up of the center. A seed grows inside each little bloom.

I have 4 in the back yard and 1 in front yard.

This one in the front yard should bloom "any day now".  I'm excited as it has the thickest stalk and is not subject to Doodle action!

Now it opened more in just a few hours!

I gave leftover seeds to the kids next door So far they have the biggest flower!  (That is our house behind it.)

Have a sunny day!
