Another picture from the past

Around the same time the previous photo was taken (5 years ago), I took this photo of the Sun Flower , I accidentally broke off it's main stem. I remember how upset I was with myself. The Sun Flower was drooping and it was in the early days of me trying to grow Sun Flowers. I thought I could try to straighten it, but as I tried, the big fat head broke off from the main stem! I thought, I can not throw this away. So, I found a short squat type bucket filled it with water and sat the head with it's stubby broken stem into the water and let it live as long as it could before it dried up. I sat it in our Sun Room. It lasted longer than I thought it would. The picture was taken with my digital camera.

I have had the same problem with a variety of flowers. You did the best you could. Sunflowers are so pretty!

In the past , I noticed big black bumble bees pollinating the sun flowers. It was neat to watch.
