A few years ago I bought some sunflower seeds and planted them in the back yard.  I no longer have to buy seeds or plant.  If I didn’t mow the yard it would be completely covered in sunflowers.  They spring up everywhere.  I’m amazed by these things.  While growing they turn to follow the sun, and they grow so quickly to such amazing height.  It’s pretty awesome.
They spread out around our fish pond this year which I thought looked kind of cool.  We had a willow tree in the back yard that died last summer.  I yanked out a sunflower growing in the middle of the yard and put it in the hole left from the willow, didn’t expect it to take, but it did.
Took some pictures in the backyard today, used a polarizing filter and then a red filter for some interesting effects.
