I went to a great sunflower field this past summer and took
tons of photos of these stately flowers. They towered over
me and nodded their heavy heads. Their leaves were bigger
than my hands! It's amazing how such a little seed can produce
this thick stalked, 8 foot tall blooming giant! I tried to grow them
once, but our local squirrel population liked them as well and
snapped their seedy heads right off. Oh well, then I just have to
buy them at the farmer's markets.
