We grew sunflowers once when I was little. The giant kind, with faces bigger than your head. I remember being astonished at the sheer number of seeds in one sunflower. I also remember being surprised at how differently the seeds tasted! This year, I sowed four kinds of sunflowers, even some of the giants.
Only one came up.
She’s a fighter.
Rabbits ate mine. 😦
Those hungry bellies!
Slugs got mine 😦
Let’s celebrate your fighter!!
Those are some serious slugs!
You know, last year the same thing happened to me. Maybe 2 or 3 straggly little plants. Lo, and behold–they left some seeds, and this year I see some sunny faces that came up on their own!
Aww, how wonderful! I just love volunteers, don’t you?
I always cheer for the underdog!
