I was in Marks and Spencer's today. They had gloriously sunny buckets full of sunflowers on display.
The French think we are absolutely pathetic in the way that we plant sunflower seeds in the garden while they grow row upon row of them in fields as far as they eye can see!
Here is a variety I had never seen before, again in Marks and Spencer's. Quite lovely!
And then there is my effort for this season! Of the few seeds that manage to germinate, these 3 reached a height of about 18 inches and the only flower appearing is a miserable green knob! As the French would say Pathétique!
