NOT how I was planning on enjoying my first sunflower out this year... but lets see what we can do with it. The big main sunflower had TONS of ants in it, so it couldn't stay in the house. I was able to put 12 of the sunflowers growing in a cute little black pitcher and they are now sitting out on the patio to get sun and love. I have no idea if they are going to grow out there or not.. but I guess we'll find out. For a smaller sunflower it had a luckier life. It had no ants in it and got to take a place in a nice little set of flowers I bought earlier today at Kroger. They are some interesting little flowers and I thought they'd be cool to have out w/ some greenery... and now they get a sunflower with them!!! In the shot glasses I put the smallest sunflowers that were growing on the stalk! Ignore the birthday bag in the background.. that's a gift on it's way out to Rhode Island!!!
I'm NOT having good luck with my sunflowers this year... I tried digging a hole and putting it in it.. but it just fell over again.. so.. dreadfully I cut off the top and cut off all the small flowers growing along the stalk and brought them in the house.
