Sunflowers in the Backyard

My sister Vic gave me some Sunflower seeds for my birthday back in April.  I didn't get around to planting them until sometime in June, but they've sprung up big time.  Well...some of them have at least.  We got back from vacation this evening and a bunch of the flowers have budded and these big beautiful yellow flowers have emerged.  I wonder if they'll darken like the commercially-available ones?

I have them tucked away back behind the swingset and I think I'll try to make this a tradition of planting the seeds there each year.
