|Can Sunflowers smile? This one sure seems to be.|
|The long, tall, 10 footers!|
These are my third generation Mammoths. I like to say they came from outer space because when I still lived at the ranch, three of them just magically appeared in the middle of the beets and carrots. I hadn't planted them, my mom hadn't planted them. In fact, neither of us had even purchased sunflower seeds that year, so it's a big mystery as to how they got there. I'm a pushover gardener though, I often let wild things grow in (and sometimes takeover) the garden, and boy, did these ladies get huge! I couldn't even close my fingers all the way around their stalks and the faces were enormous, with one that spanned almost 2 feet wide!
