First Sunflower of 2010

The first sunflower has made its appearance. Some of the petals still need to open, but here it is! So pretty. You can see how tall they get, even in containers. Matt's 6 feet tall, and they're about that height if you take away the pot.
I'm anxiously waiting to see what the red sunflowers look like. They're not very tall, maybe 3 feet? They come up to my waist.


  1. WoW ! Angela those are Tall!

    My nieces have nothing like these they would be in awe" of yours.

    I can't wait to see your red sunflowers, I've never seen one before either.

  2. Thanks! The variety is called "mammoth" sunflower, so they're supposed to be huge. I'm still waiting for the red ones to grow flowers...
