This morning I watered the plants and found that the tallest sunflower plant (about 5' tall) had fallen down.
The sunflower has been a bud the last few days and was just blooming this morning when I picked it up.
I looked at the stem, it was rotten. I guessed it might have been bitten by an animal and turned bad.
We tried to prop it up with a plant hanging pole.
Two hours later, Steve went to see it and came back to tell me: "You might want to say goodbye to the sunflower."
Ah, I haven't enjoyed seeing you enough. You will be in the picture for memory.
Those other sunflower plants in the line are very short, because the dirt is not so good and not enough sun and water.
Two weeks ago, I went to my friend's house, and her sunflower was blooming at about 8-9' tall.
See how big the head of sunflower from the other friend who gave us the seeds, we both got half head of it last year.

Last week I started a part time job introduced by a friend. So, I met Stevie.
She invited us to her house over the weekend, a very beautiful big house.
After we all arrived at her house, we drove about 15 mins to Innsbrook Resort at Aspen Lake where she has a plot of land, but she decided not to build a house there yet. However, she has a boat on the lake to go fishing and swimming.
Loading stuff in the boat, and getting ready to have fun.
Stevie briefed those who don't know how to swim.
Her husband, Al was driving the boat.
They both are very nice and friendly.
These four are a family, their two girls so excited.
Stevie came to take Kathy, and taught her how to float and swim.
Some of them fished, but Steve caught a hat.
Someone's hat flew off into the lake.
A big water gun fight and water shooting games.
A big current? Steve, are you in danger?
Eventually everybody needed to go into the water, because that is a toilet.
I pretend I can drive a boat.
The boat was moving to the lake center, everyone in the water must hold tight.
We passed some people surfing, doing yoga on surf boards & kayaking.
