This last sunflower has bigger petals than all the others did. This is kind of interesting and strange at the same time.

  WOW.
A tree decided to lose its top during a wild nor'easter we just had! Nobody was hurt, and no sunflowers were harmed.

  HURRAH!
The biggest sunflower ripened without the squirrels carrying it off! YIPPEE! And only about eight seeds nabbed by wild birds! This is a record for me!
