can you tell where the bird feeder used to be, and what type of seeds were in it? LOL
I don't mind them. They're pretty and not in the way of anything. The biggest is about the size of a saucer at the moment, including the petals.

Those are so beautiful!!! They just grew by themselves? WOW!!! I hope Lut sees these pictures. She sent a bunch of us sunflower seeds from Belgium and we planted them and posted pictures. Those are incredible. Great pics!!:)

We will have fields of sunflowers here in a month or so. They are for me late summer. Yours look fantastic :)

Absolutely gorgeous! It always amazes me how quickly and easily sunflowers germinate. When we had a wooden bird table I would always have to pick the seedlings out which had germinated in tiny cracks.

i have that little clump there, plus a couple stragglers a few feet away. I don't know how the seeds avoided getting eaten to begin with. Between the birds and the squirrels everything usually gets picked pretty clean. Only thing I can think of is that patch is next to a stump we're trying to get rid of, maybe some seeds got covered with fresh dirt when we were digging the roots out. There's a good chance the feeder got bumped a time or two with the shovel before I moved it further out.

That brings back memories. We grew sunflowers when we were kids and they were always twice as tall as we were.

Beautiful pics!
