Our Sunflower House 1

We have planted our first sunflower house. I got started by reading a wonderful book by Sharon Lovejoy called Sunflower Houses, Inspiration from the garden. It gave me a lot of ideas about what we would try.

We decided on a round house, planted with giant sunflowers seeds and morning glory seeds. The morning glories are supposed to wrap around the sunflowers and when they get to the top you lace string between the sunflowers and they continue along the string making a flower roof.

Mark and Grace both worked hard to get the ground ready and do the planting.

After we finished, we enjoyed reading Sunflower House, by Eve Bunting. We will keep you all updated on our houses progress.

Mark and Grace, When your sunflower house grows, can I come live there?
