I still have real problems figuring out how you get a plant two and a half metres tall, from a seed one centimetre long.
This is my prize specimen for the year. I love growing Sunflowers because they can stand a bit of abuse. Like when I forget to water them for a couple of days, or when we have a sudden sea breeze...gusting to thirty knots.
The sparrows are starting to fly under the petals to pinch the seeds, I think the autumn is here.
