Patience Rewarded

Finally!  The sunflower seeds that I replanted after July 4th when the first ones were eaten by the deer are blooming. Well, at least one is blooming and others are close behind. The flowers are not as big as I thought they would be, but still very pretty and this bee thinks so, too.  Click on the picture for a bigger view.

The plants are about nine feet from the ground.  I had to use my zoom lens to capture the  shot above.

Unfortunately, and as I feared, the flowers are facing away from the deck and toward the afternoon sun, so I'm looking at the backs of the flowers when on the deck.
