Sunflower of the Year

I can no longer tell which are the volunteer sunflowers and which are something I specifically planted. This type has done really well this year while others didn't seem to grow as well. Lots of branches with medium size flowers which are nice for cutting. Even on the sunniest days, it makes me think of autumn. Quite appropriate in this summer that wasn't (not that I've minded the cooler temps and rain, after last year).

Stunning picture. You're right. We didn't get much of a summer this year in our area. But I really liked it. The rain was bad for my business, but it did save me some time in watering.
Happy gardening, BOB

Beautiful shot of the sunflower against the white clouds and blue sky!
We had one of our hottest, driest years on record. Funny how it can be so different in various regions of the country.
