These are the sunflowers I grew in the summer of 2007.  I know they are no record holder but they are a record for me.  We really enjoyed them!

I grew quite a few sunflowers for the first time a couple of years ago and they grew to about 12 ft tall. The backyard looked like the Green Giant's garden. The kids loved it. Sunflowers will always be in the garden from now on.
