    Real nice Ned. If you ever head west far enough to go thru Kansas you can see miles and miles of sunflowers growing. An interesting sight if you're used to seeing nothing but cornfields.

    I like the sunflowers... we planted a row of them at the end of the garden this year... we had a rain the same night that washed away my row and I got one(1) lone sunflower... it must be really sad there all alone... the head which is about a foot across, is drooping and looking straight down.

    May try to save some of the seeds and try again next year.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Nice work, Ned.

    Since today feels like the first day of fall (and it's AUGUST), it sure brightens the day up...
