Just a 'few' sunflowers....

These were taken in 1996...there were a few farms around here that had big fields of sunflowers. I thought that it was going to become a common thing to see big old fields of sunflowers growing. It was not to be. I think they raised them that year and maybe another and I have yet to see another big field of sunflowers.

I wonder if they had trouble harvesting them before the birds got to them. I know that the sunflowers I usually have sure don't last long. Of all the years, this is the one year I don't have a single sunflower.

I love this big sunflower head with the morning glories wrapped around it....just something about it appeals to me.
