Maggie's Flower

This is growing in a pot sitting on the back fence.

Maggie watered it yesterday, but when i showed her this picture she was surprised - apparently they open FAST.

He had done a good job of covering his tracks, but that was to be expected. After all, one does not conspire to ruin a House and murder a queen and then just stand there waving and waiting patiently for retribution.

Cute.

A very nice way to teach kids about responsibility while also teaching them to slow down and appreciate beauty.

Also to appreciate the difference between sunflowers and triffids.

Just be careful getting your face too close to the center of the the flower. If you hear clicking or see the head turn slightly, back away immediately!
Don't let other peoples limitations become your constraints!

My Mom loved Sunflowers, but you guys are making think of a certain Star Trek:ToS episode & Larry Niven's book 'World of Ptavvs'.

Now see what you've done! I was reading some of the quotes from the Star Trek episode, and found them so funny I just had to watch that episode again... (Good thing I have the episodes on a hard drive...)

So pretty.
Yanno how some people have Angels/Devils for a conscience? I have a Dark Elf ShadowKnight and a Half Elf Ranger for mine. The really bad part is when they agree on something.
