Sunflowers Ruleth


Gardens  in their prime
 Sunflow’rs thrive among the fray
Thus they reign supreme
…for now


But a couple of year ago, it was the hollyhocks that totally kicked butt in the same exact spot!

  10. Sunflowers are my favorites next to Hollyhocks. Those seeds you sent me a while back, they came out this year. I did a post on it and showed the flowers. I also saved the seeds for next year.

  11. Love sunflowers. I planted some this spring, they were germinating, and one morning the tiny seed atop the stem was….gone! And the poor thing withered and died only an inch or so tall. I know why. Squirrels use my fence as a highway. The sunflower pot was in their way. Yum! Maybe someday I will get more seeds and try again. Love your natural looking garden.
