#30DaysWild Day 3 – Sunflowers

30Days3Earlier in the week we visited The Willows near Glentham to pick up some sunflower seeds.

HYKO9907[1]The garden centre was giving them out to competitive families vying to grow the tallest flower as part of National Children’s Garden Week (May 26th – June 3rd, 2018).

Today we actually got around to planting them so, seeing as that took us several days in itself, I’m not sure that we’ll achieving any first place prizes.

However, as last year our attempt at nurturing towering yellow flower heads was a complete fail, we’d probably just be happy if we achieve a few centimetres at least this time.
