A Sunflower Kind of Day
My little plot of 15 sunflowers planted early in the season is now beginning to bloom. The short sunflower in the foreground was the first one to bloom and is facing East. I'm not sure why the Mammoth in the background is not. Maybe it didn't hear that sunflowers are all supposed to face East when they bloom? My sunflowers never get very tall. In the several years I have grown them, even Mammoth is lucky to top 5 feet tall. Still, they are bright and cheerful, and if I can keep them from getting munched down to the ground when they are little, they will provide me with months of bloom.
