We rarely see huge fields of these colourful flowers, but their bright cheerfulness livens up many a town garden. Here they are growing beside the railway line in the middle of Saltaire. Perhaps the seed-heads will attract some goldfinches later on. You can just see, behind them, the golden spike on top of the church peeping above the trees.


  1. How beautiful ! Sunflowers are my favorite flowers, unfortunately it is very hard to have them grown in the gardens here. I suppose the earth is not right. But I saw sunflower fields one after the other when I traveled down through France to the Geneva Lake. Unfortunately it was the end of the season and most of them were faded. It must be very beautiful to see all these fields when they are in full bloom.
    I think there are so many to make sunflower oil.

  2. Lovely to happen upon sunflowers!

    regards from Italian view ! saluti dall'Italia.

  4. Sometimes there are acres of sunflowers, which can be dazzling, but your capture of a peaceful spot with just a half dozen sunflowers shows a skillful gardener using the sunflowers as a simple highlight.
