Sunflower and Bee Balm

I started this sunflower from seed on 2/6. On 4/8 I transplanted it into a bare spot in the potato bed. It just started to bloom this week.


This Bee Balm has just started to bloom this week as well. It is an edible perennial flower that can be added to your salad, or used with the leaves to make tea.



UPDATE JULY 9TH:

The show goes on........more sunflowers and bee balm blooming

The sunflower is lovely.I have picture on my wall of them, and about nine growing outside.I hope they bloom as well as yours.They are so cheery the flowers, a great kids seed, and a bounty to the birds after they have finished flowering.
