Sunflowers are blossoming in the summer sun.

Retired Michael Barltrop, of Clare Road, has grown an impressive five-headed sun flower, with four heads in bud and one in flower.

Lorraine Sparrow’s two granddaughters, Evie, 6, and Ava Schwingen, 3, have grown five 10 foot tall sunflowers in her garden and Charm Nield, 3, of Hillside Gardens, has grown her sunflowers in an old pair of wellies and they have reached three foot tall.

Sisters Elodie,1, and Lydia, 2, Bezdel are very proud of their sunflowers, the tallest of which is just over 8 foot.
