My sunflower dream has come true!
I have always loved sunflowers. I have tried countless times to grow them in my garden. There have been a few scrawny seedlings that grew a little bit and then were, sadly, eaten by woodland creatures. I thought my sunflower dream would never come true.
This year, to my amazement, a sunflower is growing in my zucchini patch! We have never planted any sunflower seeds here at this house. Last year, we did buy a few small sunflowers that were in little pots that we placed in our courtyard area but not near where the zucchinis now grow. My guess is that either a seed from those potted sunflowers floated on a breeze to the zucchini patch or perhaps a bird dropped it there.
Regardless, I am thrilled that this sunflower is growing! Do you have any sunflowers in your garden?
