Thigh high

The sunflowers are now thigh high.  They have had a good amount of rain (especially for August) and are growing like weeds.  As a matter of fact, there are plenty of weeds growing in the field, too. 
This is Farmer Ted out standing in his field.  Unfortunately for him, he made a face when I took the photo, so that is the one that gets posted.  (He said he couldn't believe that I would post this particular photo...but really?  He should know me better by now.)
Still projecting a couple more weeks until they bloom.


  1. do you think we'll be able to see the flower on the 24th ?

  2. They will not be blooming then. I'm still thinking the end of the month.

  3. I will be coming from Houston, and I was wondering if I should plan on the week of the 1st of September, or later?

  4. Quite a few will be in bloom the 1st week in Sept. Today and the next 4 days will be 100 degrees so that will make things go pretty quickly, I'd think. They are usually in bloom for 2 weeks. I put up a new picture and they are all starting to develop a flower head. Good luck.
