Holiday Day 8: Turning to the Sun

13th August 2013

We went for a stroll today out onto the marshes.   There are many fields there which are full of sunflowers.

For the many years we have been coming to the Vendee in August, the sunflowers all have brown petals and their heads bent down towards the soil as they dry out.

This year, the flowers are so late, they are still in full bloom and turning to follow the sun during the day.

Hopefully the extended season will be good for the bee population too.
