Nice photos Jim,
I have a stepping stone that looks just like it. My favorite stone.
All of the sunflowers I have ever had grew like this, They seemed to get
heavy and nod when they matured.
There came a point that I would snip the heads and let them dry for the
birds, always a hit in the back yard.
