As you can easily tell from the header of this blog, I am totally obsessed by tattered sunflowers. This was photographed in early September. You may think they are ugly and battered since their glorious phase has already passed. Yes, time is cruel to everyone/everything. But for me they are beautiful in their own way.
Plants flower after the vegetative phase. Yes, flowers are beautiful but note that plants flower in order to set fruits/seeds. Setting seeds is the ultimate mission to them. It appears to me that the beauty of flowers is embedded into seeds. And because of that, they are beautiful!!!
This is a Thursday Challenge and The Photo Challenge for Saturday entry. The theme is "Time" in both. And Today's Flower entry.
