I planted a wide variety of sunflowers and they are in full bloom right now. Shown here is the middle section of a 16 x 20″ painting in progress of some of the sunflowers with hazel pears. Hazel pears, as seen in the painting detail, are wild pears that are about 1-1/4 inch round. Along with regular pears, they are the most reliable of the tree fruits. Alas, the economy would have to be really bad to include them on the dessert list!
