This is due, in part, because the progress has not been as aesthetically pleasing as one would hope. But there is progress, nonetheless, which we are grateful for.
The Sunflower House sports one bloom, thus far. The sunflowers are growing at varying heights because I planted different kinds for a variety (Hubby tactfully suggested planting all the same kind next year for the sake of symmetry...)
The pole bean teepee has lots of growth, but mostly at the base. (We need to weed-whack the center, I know...)
It is planted in the spot that we had the Sunflower House last year; and it seems that last year's morning glories reseeded themselves. Which is, overall, a bonus.
