Here comes the sun

Do do do do.
Here come the sun… flowers.

The first sunflower has bloomed!

The image quality of the iPhone is pretty good normally, but in order to get a close enough picture of the flower I had to zoom the camera to its fullest extent. Unfortunately, that resulted in a pretty crappy picture. I should have either gotten out the full sized camera or a step ladder.

Side note, you can see the poor, powdery mildew ravaged zucchini at the base of the sunflowers. The zucchini and yellow squash are getting hit very hard at the moment and I have been busy and neglecting them. Not sure if much can be done at this point to salvage them.
