Here is something to brighten your day: Sunflowers are everywhere.

There are many varieties of this charming flower, some edible and others are ornamental. Two weeks ago I decided to plant the edible variety, Helianthus Annuus, from seed. This variety of sunflower grows up to 10 feet in my backyard alongside the lower decorative variety in my front yard as a display for my neighborhood. They are all ready starting to germinate. I can’t wait to share them when they bloom.

I love the sunflower because they provide such vitality and energy. And besides, they are a great food source. More later.
