Travel Theme: Autumn’s Spooky Sunflowers

I always think of sunflowers as being rather sunny things but in Spain we kept passing fields and fields of decidedly unsunny sunflowers, dead and spooky looking.

Although I would have loved to see these flowers in all their glory, in honour of Halloween and Ailsa’s Travel Theme: Autumn, I am posting a few shots of dead sunflowers.

Incidentally, they leave them this way so that the seeds dry on the plant, then they mow them down with some giant harvester and put them into a machine that shakes all the seeds out. Such an undignified death…

Except that I rather love sunflower seeds!
