I am officially declaring this the year of the sunflower! Are there sunflowers growing near where you live, or maybe even in your garden? I have noticed so many sunflowers growing around Brunswick and Coburg this summer. Took these photos on my morning walk this morning. I have even seen them on roundabouts and nature strips too! It is impossible to look at a sunflower and not smile! Reminds me of when I lived in Mildura for a couple of years, they would grow wild on the side of the road.
