Sunflowers

I have a little patio, with an even littler garden bed, and a few plant pots. Just for decoration. I can’t say I’m much of a horticulturalist but I give the garden an occasional makeover now and again. For the turtles benefit really. But there is one simple rule which all plants in my garden must live by, or they will die. They must be able to survive with whatever the weather gives them. If they rely on me to water them, they’re disappointed! As a result, almost everything in my garden is green. Although I do have a Poinsettia from Christmas which seems to have survived, and a geranium.

But it is summer so a little extra colour would be nice. So last Friday I planted a packet of sunflower seeds in a big pot I had spare. By Sunday the first one had sprouted and today there’s more than a half dozen showing. And this, thought I, was blog worthy stuff! A weekly photo showing the progress of my sunflowers! I’m sure you can’t wait to see how it turns out..
