A Late Blooming Sunflower

Several weeks ago, just to the left of a rose bush, I noticed a small seedling that looked as if it might be a sunflower so we left it alone and it grew and grew. At the weekend we got our first glimpse of its bright yellow petals and today, it's in full bloom. 

Meanwhile, around the village, the fields are crowded with brown, dry and drooping sunflowers waiting to be harvested and made into oil--including this field just across from the chateau de Léran.
