Towering sunflowers


n-sunflower-photo

It’s that time of year again for giant sunflowers, and we were happy to receive this photo from Tracy Skelonc. Pictured are brothers Andrew (8) and Coty Jr. (10) Youngs, standing in front of their Grandma Darlene Brewington’s 12-foot 6-inch sunflowers she grew this summer at her Sand Lake home. Nice photo, and the only sunflowers we’ve received this summer. Thanks so much for sending it!

Who has the tallest sunflower?


A pitchfork a day keeps the predator away! Thanks to John Wood and Kim Johnson for their funny photo. (No wolverines were hurt in the shooting of this photo.)

John Wood of Courtland Township has been nurturing his sunflowers and fighting off predators to make sure he has the tallest ones in Cedar Springs! He’s been anxiously waiting to take a photo of them at their peak and send it to the Post. How about you? Can you beat him? Every summer readers send us their sunflower photos and let us know how tall they are. When you are ready, measure how tall it is and take a photo and send it to us along with some info! Send it to news@cedarspringspost.com with the word sunflower in the subject line.
