sunflower and my friend jack


sunflower and my friend jack

after starting a garden in the rear of the section i realized that years ago it was used to bury rubbish etc and had not been used as a garden for at least 90 years so with a bit of work i planted some sunflowers they grew to 12 feet high and nearly had to use a chain saw to cut them down.later.

the earth where i planted the flowers had lain un used except for weeds and lawn and when i dug it over there was evidence that some 90 years ago the area was used for family toilet (long drop or outside toilet).
so when i disturbed it it sprang into fertile life and even surprised me at its fertility.
