Not an allotment post today but a few pics from the garden. I had a stroll around this afternoon and realised that many of our flowers are starting to go over, so took the opportunity to take a few snaps of our sunflower while they are still in full glory.
We have grown some different types of sunflower this year and they seem to have been fairly successful. Here are a few from our garden.
Giant sunflower - this one is about 8 feet tall
Just love the deep purple centre with contrasting cream tips to the leaves
These hint towards 'traditional' sunflowers with the heavily seeded centre and tri-colour leaves of pale yellow, lilac and cream
A real stunner this one - I just love the purple leaves; very striking
