Weekly Photo Challenge: Texture

Sunflower Head

Sunflowers – Van Gogh rather liked them!

I don’t know what it is about sunflowers but they do seem to excite visitors from Northern Europe, it is probably the spectacle of thousands of happy waving heads in contrast to the solitary one or two that we grow in our own gardens usually with disappointing weedy results.  This is because as their name suggests they need the sun and that is something that is not too plentiful or reliable in England.

I defy anyone (even Van Gogh) or anything but nature to produce such a wonderful work of art!

  1. And, just look at that geometry in the seed head.


  2. I love sunflowers and this photo is fabulous.


  3. Our problem growing them here- along with tomatoes and melons and other plants- is that we don’t get the heat that they need. Though we do tend to get plenty of sunny days in the summer. Perhaps I should have tried growing them this year because it’s been a whole lot warmer than usual.


  4. I love the way they follow the sun across the sky, turning their heads to face it.


  5. What a stunning close-up shot. I love sunflowers because they are the color of the sun, bright yellow. I can’t help smiling when I see yellow and anyway, those bonnets fluttering in the breeze are gorgeous. 🙂


  6. Sunflowers definitely invoke a smile. They are aptly named.


  7. Beautiful photo Andrew. I’ve always loved the swirling geometry of them. 🙂 ~Terri
