I got a little wild with the Sunflowers this Spring, planting no less than three kinds in the back row of our garden. In theory, we should have knee-high saucer-size cut flowers, head-high reddish Mexicans and, above it all, the 10-12′ Giants descended of Russian stock (stalk? 😉 )
But timing is everything, and the Big Guys won’t be rushed.
So here are a couple of shots of the smaller guys as they make their first appearances at Chez Nous:
Those were very long (15 second) exposures, on accounta it was getting pretty late when I took them, and I stopped Ziggy down to f.22 to get good depth of field. The low light wreaked havoc with my autofocus, though, so I’ll have to try again when next the light and wind cooperate.
