Sunflower Silliness






















I don't know what it is with hair bangs this year, but quite a few of my sunflowers are sporting this hairstyle.  Must be an abundance of teenagers in the group!





This is another oddity, petals hiding the face - the look of surprise!




What do you think of this?
  








Here's one that is truly unique, sprouting new buds from the centre of its face.



Finding itself different from the others, it hung its head in shame.
But that's just silly...


 It is Be-YOU-tiful!

  6. I love the comparisons to the pictures! :o) I think the last sunflower may have aster yellows, which causes odd petal growth.

    1. I googled aster yellows and I think you're right, that is so interesting. A second flower has bloomed in its centre and the top is now so heavy, the poor thing can barely keep its head up. Wait until the squirrels discover it!
