Wine Sunflowers

I love sunflowers.  Really do.  I plant them in the garden, but they never make it.  Decided to plant in the flower garden around the pool as I always keep that watered.  Sure enough, grow they did.  They grew so much that I have trouble actually seeing them.  Taller than my husband.

They are not yellow.  Not sure what I was thinking when I purchased the seeds, but these are Chianti sunflowers.  Very pretty.  Deep burgandy with an edging of gold.

The bees love em.  Lady bugs seem drawn to them.  A little green grasshopper lives on one.  I adore them.

Next year, yellow.  I'm getting and planting yellow!
