Sunny.

We have some giant sunflowers growing out back.  Seriously.  They are at least 8 feet tall.

Soon-to-be sunflower seeds.

An update from the garden…our sunflowers are beginning to bloom!  We planted some from seed, but this one is a volunteer from one of the bird feeders.

Volunteer

For the last couple of years sunflowers have mysteriously appeared in the flowerbed out back.  I assume they were seeded by birds on their way back from the feeder… or maybe those pesky squirrels.   They’re a nice addition to the garden.

This one is about 4 feet tall so far and has a number of buds ready to pop.
