Sunflower


RHS Harlow Carr - a sunflower, one of my favourite flowers. I have a huge vase of fake ones in my sitting room and they never fail to cheer me up - a bright patch of sunshine in the corner. At Harlow Carr, the vegetables beds were filled with flowers as well as vegetables. This sunflower is right next to a runner bean plant.

  1. Lovely sunny picture. I think I'm right in saying that runner beans were originally grown for their flowers before it occurred to anyone to eat the beans.
