Sunflowers!

I love sunflowers. They are my favorite flower – I even chose them as my wedding flowers.  I have about 7 or 8 sunflower plants that are growing very well.  Last week, one of them bloomed.

My first sunflower bloom of the season (sorry for the fuzzy picture).

The funny thing about this one, is that it is not very tall:

Here is a picture of the above sunflower, along with my son to show the scale. My son is just under 4 ft tall.

This morning I woke up to find this flower bloomed:

My tall orange sunflower. This one is taller than me, it's maybe about 6 ft tall.

I planted a bunch of different kinds: some orange, some lemon yellow, and some giant mammoth sunflowers.   The rest of the plants are on their way, they all have flower heads forming. It will be interesting to see what they all look like when they bloom.
