Taken back in summer 2015, in the endless Sunflower fields of the northern Turkish province of Edirne, which is in Eastern Thrace, close to the Greek and Bulgarian borders.

Wonderful Spike! I always think that sunflowers look happy. I was gazing at mine this morning watching a bumble bee having her breakfast 🙂
Never grown them at home, or seen them in the area – perhaps too too, dry and windy in summer. Might try a few this year 🙂

They look like they are smiling Spike!
Love them! When does spring start for you? Soon?
In about 3 weeks…
This gave me a nice chance to pull out the map and see where Edirne is. Love geography.
Very Beautiful ♥♥♥
Planted these in the school flower beds with my students…such a happy flower!
my favorite hubby plants them for me..
There can never be too many sunflower pictures!
Extraordinary plants, they really are.
