Sunflowers

On Sunday I noticed some nice sunflowers growing in front of where we meet for worship.

I decided that after I had given my lesson that I would take some pictures before I headed for home.

My friend Melody told me that I must post some of the pictures that I took, so here they are.

I had been seeing sunflowers alongside a field of hay during my commute to work and had been itching to stop and take pictures. Finally I found some accessible sunflowers to take pictures of.

The little honey bee has a lot of jobs to do throughout the year. I think of the many things that we eat that rely on the honey bee for pollination. This is just one example.

Now I am hungry for some sunflower seeds. Luckily I have some in my kitchen 🙂
