Love your enormous sunflowers! Great shot.those must be a mammoth variety (?) I had a mixed pack this year so we only got one really tall one (and it's not that tall).
Love this! Sun flowers are just so much fun for children.
I was there when you planted those 'little' sunflowers in the spring! I'm so glad the chickens didn't eat them all up! This picture makes me smile so much. I STILL want to attempt a sunflower house. Next year for sure!xo
Adorable kids, crazy-big sunflowers!! What variety are they? Did you start them indoors, or from seed? I really have to give sunflowers a try next summer! What's a sunflower house??
Oh, that's a great one!
They're Russian mammoths, and I just bought the seeds at the local farm supply store! I started the seeds in the spring (first time) to give them a chance against marauding chickens. You can read about Sunflower Houses in the book "Roots, Shoots, Buckets, and Boots"...it's awesome!
Wow! I'm officially inspired to plant some sunflowers in the spring :)Here's our little summer moment:http://unintentionallife.blogspot.com/2011/09/this-moment-summer-grasshopper.html

OH! Look at those little blessing. LOVELY lovely photo. The lad is sure starting to look like a mini version of Dad.
LOOK at how the sunflowers are turning their faces to your beautiful children. Following the sunshine. Awesome!!!!
Beautiful sunflowers. The city squirrels sadly don't allow for that kind of growing to happen!Happy long weekend!
