Magic Roundabout Sunflower - Part 2

 I took so many photos of this sunflower variety that I split them into 3 different posts.  This post is part#2.  What I especially enjoy about this variety are the tiny yellow stars that appear around the edge of the middle (see the second picture below to see what I'm talking about) - because of these stars, the middle part resembles a galaxy.

I had a tough sunflower growing season this year.  The problems first started with an early rabbit attack - the rabbits treated themselves to a delicate treat when the seeds had just germinated and the plants just started to emerge from the ground.  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.

  2. Very beautiful sunflowers. I had a very ruf season too . Mostly the squirrels and rabbits eating everything before it had a chance to grow. Just one of those years . Your sunflowers are stunning.
