What a Whopper

I must go around with my eyes shut on our daily perambulations. Yesterday was the first time I had noticed a Sunflower growing next to the cricket field. It's not as though it is a miniature. Far from it.
It is probably the tallest I have actually seen with my own eyes:


I usually grow a few myself though they never grow to that sort of height.
Last Spring I forgot all about stealing a few seeds from the birds' supply.


  1. And what a beauty it is! Ha ha! I know exactly what you mean John, about walking around with eyes shut; the other day I saw a HUGE unknown fern in my garden. It turned out to be a weed, but nevertheless, how come I didn't notice him when he was half the size? Enjoy your sunflower and remember to take some seeds from the head when it's ripe.

    1. Maree: I have the same problem in the garden. Weeds which are unseen one day seem to be flourishing the next.
      Not my Sunflower. Will try to keep a watch to see which birds help themselves.

  2. It is huge. It would run a bus on Bio Diesel for a week.

    1. Adrian: I read about monster Sunflowers but it's the first time I've seen one. Must ask where they got the seed from.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
