A couple of summers ago I discovered an idea for a sunflower house.
To begin, a rototiller and able bodied operator are very helpful.
Three sides are enough, because you need to have an entrance!
A few weeks later, the sunflowers are growing, interspersed with some morning glories (for color contrast)
Keep growing! It needs to be a little taller so the grandkids can hide better!
Add a table and chairs for some fun!
Looking good! A great place for Grandma to hide on a breezy summer day.
Summer ends and frost comes and all good things come to an end.
Note: I added some tall plastic garden stakes for the morning glories to climb. Next time I will make it a bit wider. When the sunflowers and the morning glories grew, they took up more space than I had anticipated making the sunflower house a little narrower than I had hoped. It would have been nice if it were wide enough to accommodate the lawnmower. When winter came there were some very happy birds in my yard feasting on the sunflower seeds. Next time I may plant some corn among the sunflowers for my giant bird feeder.
