Sometimes, the best things happen are purely accidental. This covers rug hooking and gardening. In one of my raised beds, the birds dropped a couple of sunflower seeds and instead of removing them, I planted around them.
I have had sunflowers before and they didn't do as well as in the Mainland. But my accidental sunflowers are an explosion of colour and flowers. The stalks are more than 2 inches in diameter and there are two of them, both full and beautiful.
I hope they survive the hurricane on its way this weekend. P and I cleaned up all loose garden items and will lash down anything that may become airborne. I watched in horror last night, the news about the tornadoes in Ontario and my heart goes out to the people who have lost so much.
