According to my research, sunflowers thrive with lots of full sun so yey coz we get a lot of sun here in the Philippines in this month of May. I planted the seeds in a plastic pot, an empty ice cream bowl with garden soil in it. I dug 1 inch using my pointing finger and put in the seeds one in each hole.
I covered the holes and watered the pots.
I put them on a wall where I know they'll be getting a lot of sun and also that the cats can't dig the soil in the pots.
Sadly, the sun was hiding beneath the clouds and it rained every afternoon for three days. So I had to take the pots inside the house. The packet says in lowland, sow the seeds anytime of the year and the flowers will bloom. So I put my hope in that.
The whole day yesterday, the sky goes from sunny to gloomy to sunny to gloomy or cloudy but it didn't rain. The pots were outside again. So I was praying we don't get rain in the coming days. PAG-ASA says it's not the start of the rainy season yet. I hope they're not wrong this time. The sun was shining the brightest today in days so I visited the pots outside but no changes. And when I looked on the places where I planted the seeds directly in the garden, I saw 5 sprouts of .5 - 1 inch and I was so happy! Here are my cute sunflower plants 3 days after planting seeds.
|the cutest one has the seed coat still on top of it :D|
I hope these tiny sunflowers will continue to grow. And also the 11 seeds in the pots. I'm still praying for the other two seeds that I planted directly to sprout as well. I hope we get a lot of sun in the coming days.
Do you think my sunflower project will be a success?

It's their first time to join a fun run. And I'm so proud of them for being a sport. Winter is very competitive and has a tendency to break down when he loses. But today (last Sunday), they just showed bravery and sportsmanship. As we told them, it's a fun run so the main goal is to just really have fun :)
Thank you to the children's ministry of the Metro Laguna Christian Church for organizing this fun event for the kids and the kids at heart.
He planned on bringing home J.Co donuts as treat for Mother's Day but the line was terribly looooonnnngggg. tsk tsk! so he just brought home these sweet cupcakes.
first one from left is the Red vElvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting which was finished by kuya Zach. Then the one with oreo toppings and strawberry fondant is a chocolate chip cupcake. Both tastes great! But just a little hint, the fondant is too sweet but still the choco cupcake itself is superb. Their best seller is the red velvet cupcake according to the hubby. But my fave among the three is the carrot cupcake. It's moist inside with walnut bits.
Thanks for remembering me on Mother's Day Honey! muah muah! tsup tsup!
At church last Sunday, the dads surprised us, moms with a serenade and roses to a cute upbeat song. I'm not familiar with it but the dads' moves and antics were really cute. The kids gave us handmade crowns. I hope I can get photos so I can share it here too.
May is for Mothers.
