Collecting Sunflowers and Simple & Sweet Fridays #27

It was just the perfect day to start harvesting a lot of my sunflowers outside.
I love the way they look right after 
you cut them off the stalk.
This was one of the biggest ones.
There's still some sunflowers left on the hill. 
 With the heat in San Diego,
they're growing quickly.

I'll have a lot of sunflowers for next year.
Happy Gardening!
