In the spring, I planted two varieties of sunflower seeds on the hill we see from our living room.
The deer visited, thought the seedlings were yummy, and destroyed more than half by beheading them like a guillotine.

Luckily, some tree guard spray saved the last dozen or so.
The seed package said one variety would grow 4-5 feet tall. Here they are. Huge right?
Here is the mishmash part of this post:
|Chewy and Oreo are 15 inch tall dogs.|
|Why does it seem like the dogs AND the flowers are laughing at me?|
|Chewy says, "Mommy you shrunk the sunflowers!"|
Oh well, they still look pretty (when you get close), and the "mammoth" variety behind them have yet to bloom. They are supposed to be 9-12 feet tall. I'll be lucky if they reach a yard.
Better do some research before planting next year.
