First Sunflower of the Summer

First Sunflower

This year I decided not to grow the mammoth sunflowers since they were consumed by ants last year. Instead I grew a nice row of the smaller hybrid sunflowers. These grew up to my nose last year but this year they are huge. They apparently didn’t get the memo that they are supposed to be small. Instead they are surpassing the fence. The first to bloom is this gorgeous maroon one. I can’t wait to see the other shades and colors.

    Wow, that is a lovely color! Our first sunflower bloomed the other day. Just a plain yellow one at that.
