I just want to share pictures of my sunflowers. This is my second year and this year, something different happened. The stalks developed big buds and I kept watching them every day. Then one day I walked by to find every bud had been eaten off. We have a lot of deer around us. I was so disappointed but I waited and the stalks did develop new buds and this time the deer didn't eat them!
Here is a picture of how they looked after the deer munched on them. I was so disgusted I almost pulled them up but I am so glad that I didn't.
From bare stalks to lots of buds and blooms.
If you look closely, this one has a little bee action going on.
