Short and Tall

A few months ago, we tore open a new packet of sunflower seeds and scattered them through our little flower bed.

It turns out that one side of the garden bed gets a bit more sunshine than the other side.

The result is that we have short sunflowers and really tall sunflowers – wonderfully presented by my height assistant, Sean.

The difference in size is incredible! The tall sunflowers are going crazy. They are literally bowing down, over-burdened by the weight of flowers. While the short sunflowers, well, they look stunted.

Amazing to see what a bit of extra sunshine can do.
