Magic Roundabout Sunflower - Part 1

 I had said that the sunflower variety that I featured last week was my new favorite sunflower variety, however, todays feature flower is tied for first place in my sunflower scale.  This variety is called "Magic Roundabout" and it is perfect for Autumn and fits in with the changing tree colors.  I took so many pictures of this variety so I decided to split them into three different posts - this is the first post in that series.

I had a tough sunflower growing season this year.  The problems first started with an early rabbit attack - when the seeds had just germinated and the plants just started to emerge from the ground the rabbits treated themselves to a delicate treat.  I was able to save a few sunflower seedlings and put a fence around the surviving plants.  Then, in late July and early August the leaves of my sunflower plants were devoured by Japanese beetles.  I am thankful for the few that survived.

ENJOY the following pictures!

All photos were taken by me (Angie Ouellette-Tower) and the sunflowers were all grown in my garden.
