I grew a couple of sunflowers over summer, but other than being good for photos they weren't that great! Hardly any of the seeds took, the few that did got eaten by caterpillars and the two that made it seemed to need a lot of water or they went all sad and droopy. But I enjoyed watching them unfold and open up. They lasted about a week and now they are all crispy and finished. I'll scattered the seeds and see what happens but I am not going to try very hard with them again!

They are beautiful, it's a pity more didn't grow. With my garden, it seems that not trying too hard is the best option. Some of my best plants have come up from just burying kitchen scraps, while others that I brought and tried to care for died very quickly. *shrug* c'est la vie!
