Sunflowers

Digging in the dirt is so much fun for my younger children...and me too! Early in the spring, my youngest son and I planted a row of sunflower seeds. He drowned watered them daily, watching with excitement and amazement as they grew taller and taller. Finally, he was rewarded with these big beautiful flowers!

They're so gorgeous to look at and as you say very rewarding to grow. I hope your son was pleased with the results of his labours..

Sunflowers are just so cheerful to look at. :) My son did enjoy watching them grow and it was a lesson for him in tending a garden. We also collected the heads and roasted the seeds as a treat which he enjoyed!
