The grounds at TESLI are scattered with sunflowers. Right now I am sporting some that are nine feet high. They are a cross between some mammoth headed ones and some petite bushy ones – so they are tall with multiple heads. People walk by and marvel. How did they get so tall so fast?
I started with sunflowers when I first moved in two years ago. Now they volunteer. The creation of the Phoenix – TESLI hybrid is an exciting development. What else can nature create around me?
One of the bonuses of the sunflowers is that the Phoenix flock of naturalized love birds will visit every morning. They seem to only be interested in sunflower seeds – and perhaps a morning dip.
