The flower above is the same one you see below. The petals got blown away. This was the same flower that got visited by the bee on this post.
This burgundy beauty is a stunted flower. The head is only 2 1/8 inches in diameter! Even though this is stunted, a sunflower is still a sunflower. God willing, I will still collect the seeds. Hopefully, the seeds from this will grow normal sized flowers when sown.
“Mortals, born of woman,
are of few days and full of trouble.
2They spring up like flowers and wither away;
like fleeting shadows, they do not endure.
3Do you fix your eye on them?
Will you bring them before you for judgment?
4Who can bring what is pure from the impure?
5A person’s days are determined;
you have decreed the number of his months
and have set limits he cannot exceed.”
