Lurking in the veg patch (theme)

My original intention for today??s vegetable theme was to shoot an arty close up of one of our home grown tomatoes (and before you say it, I know they??re fruit rather than vegetables!). However, my attempts failed dismally so I ate the tomato with my dinner! Instead, I dodged the thundery showers to look for something else in our veg patch. The sunflowers are now flowering well (despite the runner beans using them to grow up!) and the rain had given this particular flower a rather nice sheen. I??d never noticed the little spines on the backs of the flowers before so I decided to focus on these.

      Better that you ate the tomato, but then, you're the only one who got to enjoy it! I do love this "arty" shot of a sunflower (?). We'll pretend it's a vine-y plant - and it is in the garden...
