Much to my surprise the flash went off when I took this picture and I figured it would be a throw-away. But I rather like it just the way it came out – no editing!
Is it brown or deep red? Is it a Velvet Queen variety or a Moulin Rouge? Or something else? How long have brownish sunflowers been a thing?
Posted in response to Cee’s Flower of the Day (FOTD) photo challenge.
A week ago I shared photos of zinnias in the Discovery Garden at the Iowa State Fair. Here are a few more flowers taken the same morning. Hope they brighten your day!
The Discovery Garden has signs identifying most of the flowers. Couldn’t miss this one!
Another fair goer gushed about how easy the hearty hibiscus is to grow – even for someone like her who does not have a green thumb.
There a small water garden complete with water lilies, cattails, and goldfish tucked into a corner of the Discovery Garden.
Thanks, Cee, for the Flower of the Day photo challenge!
