My bride, Jannelle, is a half-pint next to the sunflowers in our little garden of tomatoes and some volunteer sunflowers.

They popped up from the seeds that fell from the bird feeder we had nearby.

The squirrels kept the birds away, and I eventually relocated the feeder - but didn't have the heart to pull the sunflowers out.

Now they grow with the tomatoes and it's fun watching the goldfinches and chipmunks spend time raiding the flowers!
