I'm all about these!

I LOVE these sunflowers! I'm all about these guys this year. This is the second year I've grown them, and all of the rain has turned them into something special. Their fuzzy little heads really make my day every morning when I take my lovely, lazy hound out for her morning sun. They're nice and short so they fit in my flower beds and I don't have to worry about staking them or wind taking them down.

Here's my girl with her new haircut. I gave her a nice summer trim -- down to 1/8" on her body and 1/16" on her flatwork! I'm so glad I don't have to worry about keeping her show coat on a roll.

Love the sunflowers! I've tried starting them from seed a couple of times and have never had good luck, but yours are beautiful!

Funny, I think sunflowers are probably one of the easiest germinating plants out there. Maybe your seeds were old or had gotten too hot?

Thanks for looking! :)
