Wild sunflowers start to bloom from October to November, signaling the start of the dry season. Although wild sunflowers are not as big as sunflowers, they cluster and create glowing yellow carpet when blooming. Perhaps the flower is at its best beauty in the early morning when the sunlight just comes out and dewdrops still remain on leaves and petals./.
