Summer plants part 2

When I moved into this home on the hill, I noticed
that no one had sunflowers growing.
I love this wild flower.
I did see wild ones growing on
vacant lots.
I have this large planting area in front of my home
and decided to take some of those wild plants
and transplant them into my garden.

At first I heard the neighbors rumbling
about the "weeds" I had growing in my front yard,
I insisted that they would be a beautiful thing and ignored the gossip.

Now after 3 years of enjoying the summer sunflowers, my
neighbors comment how great they
look, and I have two or three college students
ask if they can photograph them.

In honor of the sunflower
here ia a special dessert you might like to make..
