Tah Dah.................

OK, the moment we have all been waiting for.........(quite possible a massive exaggeration there folks)

THE SUNFLOWER HAS BLOOMED


The object of much mocking amongst my family is now revealed.  Finally


Its hard to believe I have waited since Easter for this one little fella.  LOL



Hmmm, someone or something else likes it too.  They have been snacking on my baby. 

Oh well, I have broken the curse ------- I can now prove that I CAN actually grow something. 

Happy weekend!!

  16. Wow you most certainly can grow something. This is a real beauty and so big. Gretchen planted sun flower seeds but hers were not big flowers like your lovely one.
    So tickled for you.
    Enjoy your flower and weekend
    Love

  20. Congratulations Kim, you did it with TLC. It looks real petty in that froggy planter.

    It looks like earwigs are most likely feasting on you sunflower. They come out at night to eat, the little beaqsties. They are also chewing on my flowers too.

    I have two small sunflowers growing serendipitously in my daylillies, planted by Mr Squirrel.
