Sunflower pictures-sunflower bouquet

Sunflowers are such happy flowers. A bouquet of sunflowers in the kitchen or in the office brightens your day and makes you do your job with a smile on your face.
No wonder that a bouquet with three sunflowers and some field herbs around them is so expensive ($5) at the flower vendors. Everybody likes them.

These in the photo are giant sunflowers that grow on the field reaching over 2.5 m in height. They don't need any care except the help of the busy, little bees.
From the seeds of these healthy flowers my favorite oil will be produced in autumn.

Did you know that sunflowers can be used to extract toxic chemicals from soil, such as lead, arsenic and uranium?

Just took my first sunflower photos today but they came out nothing like yours. A do-over is in the works for sure. Thanks for inspiring! Beautiful photos!
