    The photo is so amazing and beautiful! Your title had the Carly Simon song from 1971 in my mind right away. Yeah, that’s my age group. 😬👍🏻❤️

  2. Great to capture this! It tells ua what is going to become next.

  3. I am always amazed by this sunflower!

  4. Watching buds is sometimes the best part! But sunflowers are spectacular, so it’s worth waiting for them to unfold.

  11. Alice says:

    That will be a beauty of unfolding sunshine and bee paradise.

  12. Robin says:

    I love how you can get a sneak peak into the flower before it blooms. Beautiful capture, Eliza. 🙂

  13. Pepper says:

    So pretty and anticipation that is also fun. 😁

  14. susurrus says:

    It looks so prickly here – enough to rival a thistle! I love all those jagged lines.

  15. Dale says:

    Wonderful! Sunflowers are beautiful in all their states 🙂

  16. neihtn2012 says:

    Beautifully shot! This sunflower will be outstanding when fully opened.

  17. Did Carly Simon’s song play in your head when you chose this post’s title?

  18. A beautiful picture to also symbolize our individual unfolding…with anticipation and curiosity. 💜

  19. shoreacres says:

    Since our rains have begun, the sunflowers also are reblooming, and they’re quite a sight. I suspect most are the common sunflower, but they’re certainly not common in their appearance.

  20. sandyjwhite says:

    Almost ready to emerge!

  21. Tina says:

    I looks as if the sunflower is peeking out: “is it time for me yet?” . Great capture, Eliza!

  22. Val Boyko says:

    “Come out come out, you’re spied “ 😊

  23. Widdershins says:

    Looks downright scary, doesn’t it? 😀 … hello baby sunflower. 😀

  24. Debbie says:

    Is this just now coming out?? I feel sure ours are already in full bloom!

  25. gwenniesgardenworld says:

    They are always pretty, closed, at the back, in front, upside down….ideal flower for photographing !

  26. I see that the ketchup aka catsup (what’s up with that?) commercial has already been discussed. 🙂
    Sunflower season may signal summer’s end but it’s a beautiful ending. That looks like it’ll be a grand bloom.

  27. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Aren’t sunflowers beautiful even before they open? Mine are just flowering now, and bees are loving them

  28. Lovely from start to finish 😊

  29. She seems quite shy, though I’m sure she will break out into a radiant smile. 🌞

  30. Kris P says:

    It looks like it’s going to be huge. The paltry few I had are mostly done alkready.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      I prefer the shorter ones, but I have a few out there that must be 12′ tall… and that is in drought conditions without supplemental water. Hope we don’t get big winds!

  31. Tranature - quiet moments in nature says:

    A gorgeous photograph Eliza! 🌻

  32. spanishwoods says:

    stunning image Eliza!

  33. Adele Brand says:

    Glad that your flower rota hasn’t yet finished for the summer!

  34. Gorgeous expectations! 🌻

  35. That’s a great title … looks like it might burst open any second! Very nice!

  36. naturebackin says:

    So well observed and the photo really does capture that sense of anticipation.

  37. Jane Lurie says:

    Love this image and sunflowers at all stages. 🌻

  38. When this bud is opening, it is like showing the beauty hidden.
