I love Sunflowers! They are one of my favourite flowers. I used to grow them with my Mom when I was little.They grew so tall that they would reach up to my second storey window.

I was thinking about growing them with the kids until I remembered these old pictures. Back in 2004, way before kids I planted some Sunflowers in my back yard. They were so big and beautiful. I would look at them in awe and I really enjoyed them. Then one day my Sunflowers disappeared. Where I once had these gorgeous majestic flowers. I now had 5 foot tall sticks.

I couldn’t  figure out what had happened until I saw this little Squirrel having an all you can eat buffet. I was heart broken when I realised that this adorable rodent decapitated my beloved flowers.

Well I have learned from my mistakes.I am not going through that again. My neighbour was kind enough to give us some Tomato plants, so I think we’ll grow a vegetable garden instead. I ‘ll get some cucumbers, peppers, carrots and maybe some exotic Yellow Zucchini. 

I’ll create some memories with the kids and I’ll be far less annoyed if the squirrels eat them.

So I`m standing in line at the grocery store watching the cashier scan my food. Beep…Beep…Beep…Beep
