Lovely Sunflowers in my Garden

    I went to the City of Pines last February and I brought home a few sunflower seeds which I immediately sow. It was the tall varieties that bear flowers as large as our faces. 

   To make sure it will thrive, though I'm pretty sure it likes the sun, I made a separate bed for it covered with hollow blocks and filled it with compost. I planted it away from my other plants which at the time was covered with hateful aphids. And thank goodness it grew beautifully.

     Lovely yellow big heads filled my mornings for a few weeks, and now I've got more seeds to sow. 

      Happy gardening!
