Van Gogh sunflowers

Our first sunflowers are flowering!  They're about 1.1m tall, which is a bit shorter than I was expecting as the packets said 1.5m but they're in a spot with pretty poor soil, right next to the chicken coop.  I'm growing these partly to bring some bright colour to the garden (with a bit of fun for Rose) and also for seeds for the chooks to eat.  I've just bought some exclusion bags from Green Harvest to hopefully stop the possums and mice getting all the seeds.
