I've posted about my sunflowers on a couple of my other blogs, but I haven't done a post here yet. I planted them back in early January, since we were having such a mild winter. I figured, "Why not?" I had a large, bare spot out in front of our fence between it and the street. We used to have an eucalyptus tree there, but about this time last year, it fell over after 30 years! It hit our fence, but, fortunately only took about about 6 feet of fence, which our son repaired. So, I had this huge empty spot. I knew that the sunflowers would LOVE the full sun and the heat from the fence and they grew rapidly. Here are some of the pics of my sunflowers and the first one to open!
