Hi, George,

I was out in our garden watering near sunset yesterday and noticed that
the sunflowers, although not in flower yet (buds are maturing, visibly,
daily), the buds follow the sun.

BTW, those "visitors" in our garden are really resilient. One plant grew
up between cracks in the garden walk, making it impossible to remove. It
is right on the path, the only path, to carry the green can (yard waste)
to the curb for pickup. That plant has been run over weekly, keeps on
picking itself up and growing some more. I wish that everything in our
garden were that spunky!
