As I might have mentioned last week, IT’S MY BIRTHDAY! I am now a big, grown up two year old. I don’t know where the last year went. Mind you, at least I can read back on my blogs to see what I have been up to 😉 Anyway, M&D threw me a wonderful party at the weekend and my lovely friends came along to celebrate. At the end I gave them all a party bag which contained something very special indeed…some sunflower seeds! So, I have officially launched the “Lulu & The Sunflowers Competition”. We all have to plant the sunflower seeds and send in photos of us standing beside our sunflowers. The person who grows the tallest sunflower wins a prize, huzzah!
Now, as I am taking part in this competition too (no show without punch!) I don’t want to give away too many tips to the opposition. But, I am taking my chances ‘cos I know that you, my lovely readers, all want to hear my top ten secrets for growing sunflowers…
And remember, after your sunflowers have finished blooming, leave the flower heads so the birds can feast on the seeds.
I can’t wait to get started. I am soooooo going to win this competition! I’ll let you know later in the summer how everyone got on. Remember to send in pics of you with your sunflowers in the summer, I would love to see them.
P.S. I will need to work hard to beat my friend Jamie – he grew a huge sunflower last year so he has lots of experience already!
