Strawberry Blonde Sunflower

Posted by
Donna (Wakefield, Walnut Hill, United States) on 12 September 2012 in Plant & Nature.

I started sunflower seeds in the greenhouse last spring. One of the varieties was Strawberry Blonde. I planted the young plants around the bird feeder. The sunflowers came up and turned their heads to the rising sun in the east. All I got to enjoy was the back side of the plants. And I couldn't get in front of them to photograph them because the pasture fence was in the way. Here's a side view of one of Strawberry Blonde Sunflowers.

Next year, I'll plant some so that when they face east, I'll be able to see them.

Beautiful blooms. It almost looks like a mirred reflecion.

Even with the inherent limitations, I like the way this blossom is lighted. The Strawberry Blonde is a new one for me. I'd like to see these in person. Nice shot.
