Not too long ago I wrote about my sunflower ‘privacy fence’, and how I was somewhat disappointed with the end result.
Well, I guess I wrote too soon – the best was still to come! As mentioned, the seed mix I used for the garden is called ‘Monet’s Pallete’ since it contains a nice selection of different varieties (and colors). While some nice flowers had emerged by the time I wrote the blog post, during the past week the sunflower patch really seems to have come to life! The plants themselves have continued to grow as well, so apart from the great aesthetic appeal, they are even becoming more of a fence than expected.
Anyway, here are some photos of the various flowers that have been emerging. My favorite variety has to be the second one down. I took that shot just before the sun went down, so the flower almost seems to be glowing – pretty wild!
