My mom helped me plant sunflower seeds in the garden back in early July. Although a few sprouted only one made it to be a big strong giant sunflower. Yesterday it opened into full bloom.
Even though I planted hafl a dozen sunflower seeds and my mom did the rest I remember how exhausted I felt afterwards. I had to ask her to fetch me a glass of water as I couldn’t make it to the house myself even though I was the host. Something about this bright golden flower makes all that seem insignificant. I grew this.
The one and only sunflower to grow and bloom in my garden this year. Sep 2009.
