Conquering #3

Number 3 on my 30 before 30 list is:
3. Find and take a trip to a Sunflower field.
Well do you know how hard it is to find a Sunflower field!?!? I know they exist. We actually found a small "field" right down the road from us. Problem is, the field is in the front of someones house....The more I thought about it, I'm just not too sure how they would feel about my rolling up into their front yard to take pictures. That's when I put myself up to the challenge and decided to grow my own. This spring I planted 24 sunflower seeds in a very small patch of my yard. I think in total about 14 came up and as of right now we have about 6 that have bloomed. I am just so excited that I am beside myself. This sunflowers are HUGE! I believe they were supposed to get between 9-12 feet and I believe we have just about reached that.
Look how perfect and beautiful!!
Nature at it's finest!

  3. Love the sunflowers! I remember my Mom, myself, and my Brothers tried to plant some one time and the squirrels dug all of the seeds up and ate them. Stupid squirrels.

  6. How exciting to watch them grow and open their huge sunny faces. Your second photo is sensational. I didn't realise they can have a greenish centre.
