The leader of the pack is Flaminia! Only a few millimetres behind we have Giovanna, Lola, Guia, Maria Beatrice, Ivan and Valerio. No flowers yet, though.
And the baby of the bunch, struggling to keep in the race is Ahmad A's plant.
We have had a very stormy period here and the sunflowers don't seem to have enjoyed it much. This week's growth has been slow.... But with sunshine forecast from now, anyone's plant could become the leader so keep on checking!
