Sunflowers

Our garden continues to grow and blossom! This was taken probably almost two weeks ago and I'll have to update you again because those two tall plants in the back have gotten much taller and now have blooms.


At this point, all of our varieties are out. The moulan rouge (left flowers) experienced some damage from the flood inducing rains last week. The plant has fallen over quite a bit just from the ground being so wet. But those are still gorgeous flowers!

I can hardly believe how quickly the weather has turned here in central NY. It's been cool during the day and downright cold at night! I'll update you on the full garden this week, but first a math planning post is up next.

Hi Heather - I just saw something that might interest you at Celebrate Urban Birds - it's a Sunflower project - observing pollinators. Here's the link:

Thank you Sara! Actually, we are already involved with it and we have a packet of new seeds.

I'm doing a pilot with the Lab of O on birds. I'll be sharing it soon.
