3 metre high sunflower

And to think I started these from little seeds. The garden is doing so well this year. I am learning so much, experimenting, having fun, and playing with the hummingbirds, robins, butterflies and all the buzzing bees.

The sunflower is so big I have to hold it up with a long plank. The flower is so heavy that it is pulling over the stem. Originally the sunflower was over three metres tall (10 feet) at least... the plank is 8 feet long.

Isn't it amazing what a little seed can do?
