Reaching for the Sun…


I am tempted to say that these are tall Rudbeckias, but I may be wrong.  Very similar, with the same seed centre but petals a little more spread and looser.  . These are over 3 meters tall, some at least 4 meters…. so, I didn’t need to stoop to ground level to frame the flowers against the summer sky.

Maybe it should be described as not reaching for the sun…. but reaching for the star’s

(and if you know the real name, please tell)

Star gazing or more down to earth, whatever you are doing…  as always

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other

    1. I bow to Peters knowledge. They are Jerusalem Artichoke and from what I have read the bulbous root is very nutritional. I would need to resort to Google for preparation and cooking instructions. That said… these in this garden are not likely to be disturbed 🙂
