Most gardening seasons have their challenges and this one is no different. In my neck of the woods, we are dealing with a drought-ish summer following a mild winter. The drought conditions are not as bad here as they are a few states west, but it's still not great.
Unfortunately, I haven't had a whole lot of luck starting seeds this year. They just haven't wanted to sprout out and thrive like they normally do. I usually have a whole batch of zinnias keeping me in fresh flowers each summer. No can do this year. Their wimpy sprouts are not yielding any flowers.
I do, however, have an abundance of sunflowers.....
All of these seeded themselves from a few plants I started from seed two years ago. So...I have plenty of sunflowers for beautiful sunflower bouquets.
Who doesn't love sunflowers? I know the birds in my neighborhood sure do.
