I've always had a thing for sunflowers, at one time they were my favorite flower. I just love how they look and how they attract birds and insects. I planted some this year at our house but only a few sprouted. This one in particular had 16 flower heads on it and was 7 feet tall, but it blew down in the wind one night. I was bummed! But I did cut off the flowers to make a pretty bouquet, which by the way leaves A LOT Of pollen on the counter.
