Has anyone ever seen a sunflower like this one? It is a first for me. I thought it looked like something Jim Henson would dream up.
This is the flower right next to it. I planted them both from the same batch of seeds. They are supposed to be giant plants with 12-14″ heads like the one below.
I peed on it. Doesn’t that make it MY sunflower?
This is also my first attempt with the new editor. While not terrible, it doesn’t feel like an improvement. It just seems like a lot more clicks to accomplish the same work.
Come with Bitey and Toby to the Museum of the Imagination in Dream Our World. There you can view the world of art from a canine perspective and enjoy a day – or eight months – of unsupervised fun!
Dream Our World is available at my shop, L Bowman Studios, and from Amazon.
Oh,wow! Love the Jim Henson mutant.
Pippin says – Toby, if you pee on it, it’s yours. But you’ll make more of a statement if you lift your leg.
Toby says: Sometimes I self-identify as a Bichon named Kiki.
I LOVE LOV LOVEEEE IT !!!!!!!!!!!!
WE NEED SEEDS FROM IT !!!!!
IS THERE ANYONR TO ASK ??
I AGREE ABOUT H]JIM HENSON !!!! I ADORED THE MAN !!! THE DARK CRYstAL is one of my fave films !!!
If the flower ever produces seeds, I’ll send you some. (Unless it violates your state’s agricultural laws.)
Ha! Haven’t thought about Dark Crystal in forever!
I love how you see the word
Thanks! (You do mean through lens of craziness, right?)
Yes, Toby, that DOES make it YOUR sunflower! 😉 😀
Cool sunflowers! I’ve never ever ever seen one like that Jim Henson sunflower! I would expect that one to talk! 😉 😛
Maybe it will sing “It’s Not Easy Being Yellow”.
that’s amazingly weird!
I’m curious to see what it grows up to look like.😊
I think that’s a weed, Toby. Nah, just kidding. The Asteraceae family has over 30,000 species so there are bound to be some oddballs. Looking at Google image my guess is that particular critter is called a “Goldy Double” a hybrid sunflower. Meanwhile…man up and lift that dog leg, sir.
Goldy Double, eh? I wonder how we ended up with a hybrid seed?
So many human foods come from that plant family..and mom is allergic to them all!
I usually lift my leg, but I hate to expose the goods for the camera. – Toby
Just running around WP to see how everyone is doing. 🙂
I hope you all are doing well!
Just got busy with the garden. Thank you so much for caring!!
