My resilient sunflowers.

Wanna know how to not have to buy seeds for next year?

Leave the sunflowers out for the wild creatures all winter, and let them scatter the seeds for you.


I can't believe how many flipping sunflowers I have growing at the back, mixed in with some other weeds wildflowers that I scattered there last year as well. I am going to need a rope across there to hold them all up.

And I have lettuce.

Big Romaine. (ok, not so big)

But bigger than these!

And my no fail irises are beautiful.

And my globeflowers….my favorite of all. I should plant more, they are so pretty and when they are done blooming they still look lovely when they dry out.
