Sunflowers in Front Yard - 2013
I dropped the seeds in earlier this summer and mostly forgot about them. They're on the south side of our yard and the walkway is on the northside, so I have to be purposeful to walk over there to check these out. I also (recently) put the pumpkin seeds down right by these sunflowers so now I have two reasons to spend time here!
As you an see from the photo, at least one of the plants is pretty far along, but the others are starting to catch up. They grow in big spurts and move fast upwards. Here's a photo from two years ago in late August that shows where they were then. I'm thinking we'll be right on track this year again with flowers opening up in a few weeks.
