For some friends, including Daffy and Midwife’s Muse, it’s not been a good week so I thought that I’d do a post on the flower that is seen on many allotments, and which surely brings a smile to anyone seeing them.
This is a giant single but it’s barely 3 feet high with a flower no bigger than a saucer!
Perhaps it feels somewhat overshadowed by this onewhich is close by on George’s neighbouring plot being well over 6 feet tall with a dustin lid sized flower!
Back on my plot there are several of the smaller multi-headed varieties such as Autumn Beautyand Pastiche
I think that this is another lovely looking sunflower just over the path on George’s plot but is facing mine!
I love them all and as well as growing the familiar giant singlesagain next year I will also be sowing the wonderful looking variety Vanilla Ice which Beginninghere very kindly sent to me some months back but which I didn’t use this year.
