Sunflower Central


This is my attempt to try to show you how tall the Russian Giants are reaching. They are not fully open yet but they are climbing amongst the apple tree boughs. 


It's sunflower central around here this year with multi-headed bronze varieties


So cheery and enchanting to the children visiting our garden this year.


They tower above everyone's heads but the Russian Giants are reaching about....


8 feet tall !
