Sunflowers

It’s been a year of gardening ups and downs, but one set of plants is doing universally awesome. My sunflowers!

Seriously, they seem to love the heat and the dry weather we’ve had this year. They’re all 8-12 feet tall. I think, once they get taller than me with my arms stretched above my head it’s hard to tell… And I think 8-12 feet is kinda taller than the pretty ornamental varieties I plant are really supposed to get…

I’ve been cutting flowers to put in vases all over my house. But I can’t cut them as fast as they seem to bloom. Which doesn’t bother me or the bees.
