Plants in The Middle East

Flight of the Bee

My outdoor sunflower plants are starting to flower – so far I have a bright yellow and maroon. I ordered these since I didn’t want the same dull local sunflowers. They seem to be doing well in our weather, although the yellow sunflower plant is tall and lanky and may topple over if the flower becomes to big!

Enjoy! The bee certainly seems to be enjoying itself.

Some of the yellow ones which the parakeets planted (!) grew very tall with large heads. They eventually bent under their weight but did not break. I left them there until the parakeets harvested their produce and then just pulled them out. They are gorgeous though and I am partial to sunflowers.

I did grow some from seed and have enjoyed various varieties over the years.

That orange one of yours looks particularly nice, well done!
