Although we try to grow vegetables in our raised beds I can't resist popping in a couple of sunflower seeds as well. I love the shear spectacle of their flowers - this year only one of the seeds got its act together - so this flower is getting special attention.
Its also a sure sign that we are in the real summer - no more of this phoney "It may be summer, but maybe not" kind of weather.
I like the flowers - and it seems the visiting bee does as well.
You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.
Enjoy the pictures.
