Sunflowers in the sun
3 Jun 2010
Just west of St Augustine Florida the oldest city in the USA is a plot of several acres that a local farming family plant various types of Sunflowers every year. They do not harvest the seeds but just plant for the enjoyment of those passing through this rural area. I will retrieve a number of these flowers after they mature to feed all the critters on my property.
Some years they plant Goliath Sunflowers which is truly amazing site to see. Three times the size of these in the story and four feet higher. The field is full of all type of insects flying from flower to flower. The family has hundreds of acres planted with Silver Queen corn, feed corn, and potatoes. This part of Florida grows vast amounts of potato chip potatos.
I did a U Tube tribute to our servicemen using pictures of these sunflowers which can be found by entering Coleevictor at U Tube. Enjoy
