Mexican Sunflowers

Late in the summer Gracie and I planted some seeds, including these Mexican Sunflowers.

The plants grew and grew and grew, taller and taller and taller. FINALLY, they formed some buds about a week ago, and we have one small flower. It's way at the top of the tallest plant. Do you see that speck of orange near the top of the photo? That's it!

Here's a close-up. This isn't quite the festive display I was hoping for, but I'm happy we have a bloom!
