Giants in my garden
REACHING for the sky over Heavitree in Exeter, these monster sunflowers certainly give the neighbours something to be envious of.
Dwarfing the young grower Olivia Gill, these giant blooms are heading skyward.
Like an urban version of Jack's Beanstalk, Olivia's towering sunflowers just won't stop growing.
The six-year-old, a pupil at St Michael's C of E School, planted two packets of sunflower seeds and was delighted when they all grew.
She gave lots of the young plants away to neighbours and friends and has the remaining 20 or so growing around her garden – and they have all turned into giants.
"I grow sunflowers every year with my mum, but this is the best crop we have ever had," said Olivia.
"Every seed grew into a plant and they all seem to be growing really big. They are attracting lots of bees into the garden, which is really good."
