You just have to smile!!

Every Year we try and grow some Sunflowers, I really love the way they start as a small seed and end up HUGE. This year dad started them off and we both planted some, mine have remained smallish at just over 7ft tall, while his have taken off and are at least 13 foot tall!! In my defence all I have done is water them, he on the other hand has lovingly tended his and fattened them up with miracle grow!
Thinking about it, I wanted mine to stay small so that I could photograph them without having to resort to a step ladder. (That's my excuse and i am sticking to it) although there is something about sunflowers that makes you want to have the tallest! I do have one very unusual one, this one has 5 different heads. Not easy to photograph as its in the thick of them.
So beautiful sunflowers remind me of fields of them blowing gently in the breeze in France, pure summer bliss!
