    Default Sunflower update.

    As promised here is an update on my Sunflowers.
    The wind and dry spell is taking a toll on them. There are/were some really huge yellow ones, measuring 7 inches across. They were so heavy that, even though I staked them, the wind blew them over. I am drying them to get the seeds.
    Thanks again to Andrea. My friends are marveling at the pretty brown/red ones since we do not see that colour here.
