Look What's Coming Up Now....

First we cleaned out the sod...

And then on June 16th we added a mound of topsoil
and sowed a shallow row of sunflowers
that I had on hand from the bird feeder...

A few days later, on June 21st, hardy sprouts
began to poke through!!

July 6th

July 22nd

These are the wild ones that fell from the feeder
and were planted by the birds!
They were started about 3 weeks earlier and are
about 4.5 feet tall now

Today, July 24th

Gus is worried that he won't get to spy
on the neighbour dogs now!

Pretty soon these blossoms will be peeking through!

All the flowers of all the tomorrows
are in the seeds of today.

Hi Jessica,
WOW, I can't believe how fast your sunflowers are growing. Please post when they open. I love sunflowers too, they are so friendly! Thanks for sharing and stopping by to visit. {Love your music!}

I would love to see a photo of the sunflowers now! I imagine they are huge!
