Lots of Flocks

A banner year for flocks. Sun, heat, lots of moisture all make for happy sun flowers .... not to be confused with sunflowers. These are next to the patio. I used to have just pink and white... but somewhere along the way nature took it's course and a merger occurred... above and below are Merger Flocks.

Alright.... this (above) isn't a flock... but it was pretty so it got photographed. I wanted to do a lot more images but I was starting to melt....


  1. My grandma always planted these,curiously they are named the same in Russian

  2. Beautiful pictures!

    I have some too--it's too bad you can't get the smell as well as the pictures. Despite the hail we got 10 days ago, they are holding up.
