When Mother Nature gives you sunflowers…

This is Mother Nature's way of letting me know that I have a LONG way to go before I'm a Master Gardener!

Gardening EPIC FAIL! This is Mother Nature’s way of letting me know that I have a LONG way to go before I’m a Master Gardener!

don’t try to transplant them!!!

Every time I start to think I’m a Master Gardener, Mother Nature, life, karma, what have you, sends me a very clear message that I’m just a little gardening novice in the grand scheme of the gardening universe!

This (formerly beautiful) sunflower was starting to grow a few steps outside my back garage door and I let it go for far too long because I love sunflowers.  Yesterday, I got the brilliant idea to transplant it to the space formerly occupied by some tulips and daffodils.

As you can see, the resulting horror will keep me from getting a big head (when it comes to gardening, anyway!) 😉 And from now on, I will let the sunflowers bloom where they plant themselves 😉

A volunteer sunflower, probably from seeds dropped by one of my fine feathered friends!
