Heaven's reflection in Sunflowers

This year's premier crop isn't the tomatoes, or squash, or even fava beans...it is the amazing sunflowers that I grew from seeds that I planted in April. I ordered them from an Etsian and also planted a Mammoth variety as well, which will bloom soon. But the first to bloom are the "Moulin Rouge" variety, which are a multi-headed variety.

The average height is 12', some are going to break that and reach 14'....but they are just amazing....
Wishing you a safe, sane and happy 4th of July!!

What incredible height they reached. I think sunflowers are some of the happiest flowers you can grow.
