We planted these sunflowers in memory of Spotty’s friend Hayden. Hayden was called to Heaven to be an angel last Summer at the too young age of almost 8. Hayden loved to have a competition with his family each year to see who could grow the biggest sunflower. So this year, Spotty, Macy(a very beautiful, young guest gardener) and I decided to try our hand at a little sunflower competition.
Of course Spotty’s are the biggest!
And Macy’s are the prettiest.
They all make me smile. They also remind me to count my blessings, hug my kids, and say a prayer for Hayden’s sweet family. Hayden’s tradition continues to make the world a brighter place.
If you have never planted a sunflower, you should give it a try. Maybe you can have a little friendly competition in your garden. It’s guaranteed to brighten your garden.
