    My wife asked me to take daily photos of these flowers today after we'd finished mowing lawns and doing some general cleanup in the yard this morning.
    She said one is a sunflower, the other a dinner plate Dalia.
    We shall see what becomes of them.

    The sun flower is getting so tall I'll need a step ladder to get a good shot of it soon. DSC09529-1.

    Our sun flower it totally facing the wrong way to make picture taking easy. Who ever said it would be easy?
    So here it is, shot against a partly cloudy sky as the marine layer hasn't burned off as of yet.
    Shot with A7ii w/Nikkor 50 1.4 LTM lens.

    The Dinner plate Dahlia is finally fully open and the second bloom is starting to open now too.
