Sunflowers are exciting and beautiful. This year we had volunteers (did not plant them) all over the area near the house, and in the fields. Last year I had planted a variety in one area, this year none were in that planter box. The birds had scattered them on the slope and on the other side of the road. The color has to make you smile. Some are one foot tall, and others have grown to over 12 feet. They are just starting to fade due to the hot summer days and we can not water all of them. I have noticed a few weather the heat and no water just fine.. Want to have more of that type sprouting up next year. Enjoy your hot summer days, and remember to smile.
