Bugs & The Magic Roundabout Sunflower

 This is my final sunflower post for this year.  I took so many pictures with bees and other bugs enjoying the "Magic Roundabout" variety so I had to reserve one post showcasing these photos.

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.

I didn't notice that there were two bugs in this photo below until I enlarged it on my computer.  The bug on the left is actually a spider.
