Spud, I don't know how you can keep from keeping Bunny for a pet. So small and vulnerable, I wager that he will let you pet him. 

"The tallest sunflower measures 9.17 m (30 ft 1 in) and was grown by Hans-Peter Schiffer (Germany) in Karst, Nordrhein Westfalen, Germany, as verified on 28 August 2014."

"Dwarf Sunflowers "Johnny's dwarf sunflower selection includes a number of different colors, sizes, and even a double-flowered variety. These sunflowers are perfect for planting in containers either singly or with other varieties, as well as in the garden where they will grow just a little taller. Compare dwarf sunflower characteristics in our Dwarf Sunflower Comparison Chart."

We have cold weather, too, and beautiful partly cloudy skies, nice big cumulus clouds. This week we are in the mid 40s and low 50s 

Colors turn quickly red on the Burning Bushes.

It does look smaller than average, but it's been a long time since I've been around rabbits, so I'm not sure.

Spud, is that a miniature? It looks like one. Shorter ears and about half the size of a full grown rabbit?

Cute rabbit. I would probably want to make it a pet.

33° F was predicted as a low for this morning, so I closed my small greenhouse to keep my muskmelon warm.  The low only got to 39°, but the melon plant probably appreciated the extra warmth anyway.

Here's the black bunny in my yard, warming itself in the sun.  It looks brown in this image, but it's really black.

Nope. Not confused.  Technically, you made a boo boo paragraph, but in reality, I think most people will know what you meant.  

Comment by Randall Smith on September 10, 2016 at 7:14am

Bad paragraph! Birds are chirping and sunflowers are left standing, just in case you were confused!

Comment by Randall Smith on September 10, 2016 at 7:12am

Gold finches love sunflowers. I hear them chirping all the time. I leave them standing into the winter for cardinals. My sunflowers are volunteers--have been for 40 years!
