The sunflowers are defying all expectations. They were scheduled to bloom mid August.
Instead, they are starting to pop open now.
They have also bolted up another foot (or more) in the last week and for some reason are over 6 feet tall this year. Go figure! Based on their growth rate this year, I'm sure that THIS WEEKEND will be optimum field viewing. I'm just positive that this will be it. (Unless they surprise me again...)
