Day 252 – 9th September – Size Doesn’t Matter

Day 252 20180909

I’ve never been very successful with Sunflowers. They are wonderful plants, look stunning and have multiple uses when they reach their end. So I am therefore pleased with this one that has grown really well, despite garden critters tried their best to thwart it. Everything is not quite as it seems though as this is not the type of sunflower that most people think of. Instead it is a dwarf variety so only a couple of feet tall. It is though still wonderful. My mum grows them every year to as a tribute to my Godparent’s son who passed away at an young age from Leukemia and has been far more successful than me, so I can’t really claim credit for it, but am still enjoying sunflowers in the garden.
