Giant sunflower spotted

Special care leads to special sunflowers...

I have always found sunflowers fascinating, from those grown yearly at Plainfield's Bethel Presbyterian Church's community garden at East 6th Street and Roosevelt Avenue, to the wild roadside beds that used to be visible along Inman Avenue in Edison.

But Tuesday, I was wowed by a yardful of giant sunflowers in front of a Clinton Avenue home. Tucked in a neat fenced-in yard, the towering giants had somehow magically escaped the predations of squirrels, who always broke the leaves off mine while climbing up them for the seeds.
