Another august beginning ...

the first sunflower in Seanhenge.
Click to enlarge.

Interestingly, when the sun is standing in the west,
the sunflowers in Seanhenge
would look eastwards.

Which is why this very photograph
has the effect it has.
Do I need tell that very often
when being here I am longing to be there?

Anyway ... wishing everyone
an august August.


  1. Enchanting!

    ...and the best to you too, Sean.:)

  2. What a radiant bloom!

    My newly-re-blossoming cactus and I wish you and your readers an awe-filled autumn, Sean.

    I am fond of a photo I have, of a pair of sunflowers in a garden in Poznan. Curiously, both are facing away from the sun. A wider survey of this phenomenon may be necessary.

  3. Claudia,
    thank you. :)

    thanks to your cactus and you.

    As for the wider survey: It should not be too difficult to generate third party funds (EU, sunflower-growers and solar power industry) for our basic research. I think three million Euros would be fine for both of us, for a beginning, hm?

    CherryPie, Jams,
    a sunshine, isn't it? :)
