Between our patio and the corner of the fence where the rain barrels live, is a lot of concrete. "The pile" is next to this concrete and we're storing some staw bales on the concrete for future mulching. Even with all this concrete, you'll see I have flowers sprouting in this space. I'm used to having bachelor buttons, love-in-a mist, larkspur even an occasional daisy self seed in the cracks in the concrete; but this year, I have sunflowers! I expect sunflowers around "the pile," but this is a first. Sunflowers in the cracks in the concrete. These are wild sunflowers not the large ones with the seeds you eat. I doubt there are enough nutrients in that little crack for these sunflowers to get big or even survive. We'll see. Bloom where you're planted!
