Do we at least have the Duluth record?

Apparently, the record for heads on a single sunflower plant is in the low 100s. This one from PDD’s West Duluth Headquarters only has about 25 heads — which the Internet tells us is actually rather common. Anyway, some critter chewed this sucker down last night, so our attempt at the record has fallen considerably short.

Grandfather’s 104-headed sunflower started as a weed in his carrot patch … now it could be a record breaker

That's crazy! Our sunflowers are all singles.

I used to think that sunflowers were super creepy.  So Mr. Emmadogs, one summer, secretly planted some by our back fence.  There I was, innocently doing the dishes and looking out our kitchen window, and something started cree--ping o--ver the fence ... SUNFLOWERS!!! much like the pods in Donald Sutherland's back yard in Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Now I find them to be oddly ... pretty. Soothing. We have some in a vase now, as a matter of fact. I find myself losing ... thought ... though.

My stand of thirty-something sunflowers on the corner of my property is the envy of the neighborhood ... save the two or three twelve footers in Leon and Britt's garden.

We have at new contender in the 20+ head category, but the sudden cold weather might might make additional blooms less likely.
