So we have all these weeds on the side of the house. I've been working periodically all summer pulling them (and as punishment for fighting or hitting the children have pulled some, too). A few weeks ago I asked Kirby to get some particular hard to pull ones. Well like I said that was a few weeks ago... They've gotten quite thick now. They were some ragweed and other ones I don't know what they are, but they were just too big. One behind the air conditioner has this really tall thick stalk. Turned out it is a sunflower! My favorite weed of all.
I don't know how we got a sunflower there, last year we didn't have any weeds- this is in our rock garden. Weird.
