Sunflowers out of this world

They really made the yard light up. One went to the cafe in Los Altos. The other five wound up in the back of the back house. Could it be that they grew to Jack-And-The-Beanstalk size? They did. They have now wilted and their seed baskets are over a foot in diameter. The salted roasted sunflower seeds are the best I have ever had. The stalks would be sad to lose their heavy load if it were not for the hops plants that are still winding up to the sky. They, too, have blossoms now. Picked thy have the fragrance of beer. But the seeds from the sunflower, they are truly out of this world. They have the memory of sun in them. They are worthy of a fairy tale to be told a non-believer.
