My sunflower forest~~Sunday Stills 052409











This was my "sunflower forest" in its prime. ALL the sunflowers have now gone to seed and the birds are busy eating them. The ones that are left are all dried out and only 4 remain. I have left them for the birds. While they aren't pretty, they DO serve a function! I only hope my neighbor's gardener doesn't decide to come over and put ROUNDUP on them!!!!!!!! I have planted some seeds among the tall stalks and the seeds are coming up and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he doesn't trespass on our property (Yes, I've now put up "no trespassing" signs)! But, this is how they looked when they were tall and mature.

The sunflowers are lovely, Cheryl Ann!

I also garden in a desert. You should check out all the sunflower types offered by Seeds of Change in Santa Fe, NM, they do well here and would probably work in your location. I really like the one they offer called 'Teddy Bear' which is very unique. Good luck with your garden!

Like the sunflowers. We try and have a variety around our house too, all sizes. Looks very nice.

Those are amazing. There's a guy in my neighbourhood that has a big stick showing his grow to 15/16 feet.
