These are some photos of my sunflower garden in the front of my yard last spring. I planted the seeds next to my front fence in December 2008. By April, they were 6 feet tall! We used to have a huge eucalyptus tree in that spot, but during a windstorm a few years previous, it fell over onto our fence. Our son came by and replaced the broken fence boards and I had a large bare spot. So, I figured I'd plant sunflowers there and see how they did. They grew and grew and grew! I'm sure it wasn't up to code, and my neighbors on one side sprayed the next crop with ROUNDUP, but I, and others, enjoyed these sunflowers that year. ABC Wednesday for November 25, 2009.
