Growing Like A Weed...
My 14 year old son in one of my swamp sunflower patches. He stands about 5 feet 8 inches tall and he's standing on a short step ladder, so I estimate the top of his head is 7 -8 feet high in this picture.
The yellow is the swamp sunflower of course, but mixed in is the heirloom orange cosmos that a lady gave me. If you look carefully, some of the cosmos is even higher than the sunflower.
I didn't plant any of the flowers in this picture. They are all volunteer descendents of a few originals tossed in the garden a few years ago.
I did plant the boy...he is growing taller every day and I can see the day...maybe next year ...when he is taller than his dad.
