Sunflower Mischief


Today’s post was suppose to be another failing garden post except instead of failing vegetables it was failing sunflowers.

If you’ve been a reader of this blog for a few years then you know that sunflowers are by far my favorite flower of the summer.

Every Spring I plant them and every Summer I cherish them when they bloom.

They are my happy flowers.

They’re the flowers that I look at and see them smiling and dancing back at me.

This year, just like everything else that I planted, they are struggling.

Struggling so much that I just had my very first one open last week.

It took forever.

Every day I checked them and was sadly disappointed that there was none smiling back at me and dancing.

Finally, one morning I took a peek and there was one smiling and dancing back me.

It was the longest I have ever waited for a sunflower.

Or not.

According to that memory thing on Facebook, in 2013,  TODAY was the first day I had a sunflower.


So that means that my sunflowers this year are actually ahead of my sunflowers 2 years ago which means the whole sad and depressing post I was going to write for today is irrelevant.

Love it when that happens.

The one year I finally got a sunflower to bloom, a bird came along and killed it. I was heart broken.

Hey, whenever they make you smile, doesn't matter as long as the eventually show up. Looks like they make Leroy smile too.
