Sunflowers


We have several volunteer sunflowers that have come up in the front flower beds after some heads that were drying blew off the porch last fall. They look a bit out of place, but I can't bear to take them out.


I bought a few dime packs of assorted sunflowers to plant along the chicken fence. We placed the tallest growers in the back, and the shortest toward the front. Soon, we'll have a fence all in bloom. ( And tomatoes on the side!)

One of these beauties has already opened, and I love the color of it!

I planted giant sunflowers this year, and have been kicking myself for not planting the bouquet sized ones, I don't know what I was thinking.

Yours are going to look beautiful, please post a picture once they're blooming along the chicken coop!

Tracy, That is a gorgeous rust color. I wouldn't be able to pull them out either.
