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.
