A Happy Accident……

I am only a Sunflower….. but I am rather special.

At this time of the summer, we regularly get images of fields of sunflowers, their yellow heads stretching off into the distance. Easy to grow we are told, even school kids are encouraged to grow them at home with competitions to see who gets the tallest flower.

Try as we might we never have much success.

This year we bought some Lobelia bedding plants and tucked away in the seed tray was a shoot which Jean correctly identified as a sprouting sunflower.

It’s been transplanted several times, nurtured during this summers strange wea…… and wow, we now have a bold big yellow flower.

It may only be one flower….. but for us well worth bragging about 🙂

Weather across the globe seems strange and in places dangerous…. so as always….

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
