Last Wednesday we went to a large nursery (vivero) in Portoviejo to get some more flowers for our new flower beds. We spotted two two-foot tall sunflower plants that had buds almost ready to open and asked how much they cost. At $3.00 each or two for $5.00 we could not resist getting them both. Two of the largest buds opened up this week.
This afternoon I went out to get some close-up pictures of one of the most amazing and intriguing flowers I have ever seen.
