For fun I thought I'd plant some sunflowers this year. I have to confess this is the first time I think I have ever grown them in my life... shameful almost ;)   Hopefully they might bear some seeds for me to nibble on.  This one I took a snap of t'is afternoon makes a great desktop background

Thats a cool sunflower Bill. I tried Gerberas last year, but they went all droopy. Maybe not enough water here in Melbourne for them ...

I'll try sunflowers next spring.

Thanks Robert. Be warned they are extremely tall. These ones are between 6 and 9 feet !
