I never got a chance to respond to Frank's gardening produce challenge last week.

Here's my contender (camera phone) - freshly picked, pungent and divinely aromatic!

Very jealous Alaun
My son is staying in Geneva and complaining about the heat.
Here in the UK it is struggling to reach 20C :(

Oh yes - jealous of the wonderful sunflowers too.
(I have several in my garden that are well over 2m high, yet have a tiny flower head)

Thank you, John.  The scene made me forget about the heat and humidity for (only) a while.  :)

Beautiful rendition of the sunflowers.  Same here for the summer.
