Sunflower Blossom Ready to Bloom DSCN 5836.jpg
Mammoth sunflower blossom opening in summer silhouette against a blue sky. Sunflowers have been an icon in art for many cultures.  They feed the birds and wildlife with their seeds, and provide essential oil for humans.  They are a versatile crop, and when ready to harvest create a breath-taking sight. © 2008 Margaret M.
