More Flowers

        I found four new species of flowers in bloom this morning. We have a couple of "native" sunflowers that I have not really seen in the wild but a friend gave us some a few years ago from his native garden and we put them into a section of our labyrinth. They seem to be spreading on their own and we saw this one in bloom for the first time this morning. It is the "Tall or Giant Sunflower." The French is hélianthe géant and the Latin is Helianthus giganteus.

We enjoy seeing a variety of yellow flowers at this time of year. In our labyrinth we have 3 different sunflowers, 3 different goldenrods and black-eyed susans all contributing to the yellowness of the area.
