Remember this pic from last week? The plants were huge but not yet blooming.
Now, they look like this! Gorgeous!
I chose sunflowers as a garden flower because they attract beneficial insects (you know, the ones that eat the bad guys) in larger amounts than other smaller flowers. If you can get a good a enough look at the center of the flower, you'll see several of the good guys crawling around the edges of the circle.
Other (less impressive looking) flowers sprinkled throughout the garden this year are marigolds and candytuft.
