1st Sunflower Bloom

These pictures were taken over a period of 5 days. This is my 1st and currently, my only sunflower bloom.

I am happy that I caught this green bee looking creature

I just found the great sunflower project. I am registered and recommend others do too. This is a bee counting project which I think is pretty important now.

Beautiful sunflower and such a delight to watch it open. Thanks for that. The bee counting project is a great way of helping discover what is happening to the species. I have noticed a marked decline in bee numbers over the last few years. I don't use insecticides but all three other neighbours blast away at just the time for bees and birds. No telling them. I am sowing lots of bee loving flowers and what natives I can afford. I am horrified at the state of the bee in North America...can nobody see how dire this decline is?????????
