The Life of the little "Sunflower"

The sunflower is named for its ability to follow the sun in the course of a day.  
They can grow to be 12 feet tall under the right conditions.  
The students and I enjoyed watching our little "Sunflower" grow to 6 foot 
and live a happy, healthy, and full life.

The little baby of a seed is eager to grow.  Can you find her in the group?
Life as a toddler...Sunflower getting its bearings on life and growing very fast!

As a teenager Sunflower has a few upsets including stunted growth and a few bug
bites but she pulled through just fine.

What a fine looking young woman Sunflower has become.
The full circle of life...Seed is ready to harvest and begin again :)
