Weekly Photo Challenge: Big

11 Comments

Here’s my photo for this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge.

Mammoth Sunflowers

My husband took this photo in our garden a few years ago.  Since then, we have gotten much better at growing vegetables, but we haven’t had as much luck with the mammoth sunflowers as we did that year.

  1. Wow! We’ve only tried to grow sunflowers once. Luckily, the kids were younger then, so even the relatively short flowers towered over them. 🙂

    • I think the seeds matter. Mammoth is a variety – and even so, we just had that one year so far when ours got really tall. It is good that kids start out short for many reasons including looking up to sunflowers 🙂

  3. The sunflowers are so huge and beautiful that I could almost feel the SUN radiating from them!
    Love & peace!

  4. Wow! Those are tall sunflowers! I had no luck with my sunflowers this year. I nurtured them as seedlings and then when they were strong enough I planted them outside. My dog then decided that they were very tasty and ate the tops off them all!!

  5. Holy cow! How did you get them so big that year? Special food?
