My Happy Sunflowers
You plant them and wait approximately 90-100 days.
So much can happen - the birds for one, love the little seedlings with the seed still attached.
One plot of sunflowers I planted - I only had 34 come up.
Every morning I would go out and count and I'd lose a couple.
At this date, I only have 15 in this particular plot.
Doesn't this sunflower just radiate "Happy?"
Same type of sunflower, all planted at the same time -
some grow really tall, and others came in shorter and stockier.
The bugs tried to annihilate my flowers before their time.
I as, their PROTECTOR came to their defense.
You do have to keep a daily watch on them.
They are big and strong but in some ways, just as fragile as any smaller more delicate flower.
