Wordless Wednesday: Giant Sunflower

-Sunflower_sml_IMG_9274

Almost wordless: This volunteer is one of the largest and happiest sunflowers I’ve ever grown. It is at the edge of my backyard wildflower garden, is about 6 feet tall and has an 8 to 10 inch disc. The little bee towards the center was unintentional but gives perspective to the size.

    I’ve never tried growing a sunflower (do they take a lot of sun or is that a silly question?) Astonishingly beautiful.

    Here’s my Wordless Wednesday/Wondrous Words Wednesday.

      The more sun they get the happier they are. The ones I have in a less sunny area are just starting to bloom now.
