Mary-Anne, this sunflower was a volunteer from the bird seed. If you don't have it and would like it I can save you some seed.

It has turned out real nice Betty. Yes please, Plenty of buds there the ones I have flowering now are skinny looking ones with only one flower and no buds at all

I wont be growing any more in the Summer as I am shocked at the amount of water I have used to keep them alive from now on I will only plant in Autumn and Late Winter.

Have you received those seeds yet I posted Tuesday ?

I kicked myself last night for not telling you in this post that your seeds had arrived, Mary-Anne, but hey, I'm usually half asleep nowadays on the forums. snore I was going to plant some but after what you've said, I agree, they take too much water, and mine also can be planted next Autumn. I have a row of sunflowers out in the orchard that are just about to flower, so that will do for this year. You know, they amuse me, the flowers face the sun as it rises, then follow it till it sets. A fact you probably all know but that I've only realised seeing I haven't gardened for so long. LOL. Thanks very much for the seeds, muchly appreciated.
