Wild sunflowers in the yard are in competition with the top of the roof for complete domination. You have to admire their relentlessness just a little.
I trimmed these buds from a huge stalk currently taking the lead. A second stalk I knocked down months ago, and it decided to keep flourishing horizontally. Invasive, may be an understatement. But pleasant none the less.
And, I find it hard not to find just a bit of joy in sunflowers. A happy lot they are.
