Teddy Bear Sunflower - Waiting for the Lorax!

Teddy was so excited when he found out the sunflower that he planted and cared about since Spring started blooming next day after we came back from our vacation. Looked like our little shaggy sunflower was excited too and welcomed Teddy back the way it could.

We decided to plant a flower with Teddy after we watched the movie the Lorax. We went to Urban Harvest organic seeds store and found the flower that looks exactly like a tree from the Lorax movie.

The winner was Sunflower Teddy Bear – a dwarf sunflower suitable for growing in containers or in garden beds. Teddy planted few seeds in the big pot and the rest we planted in the flower bed in our backyard.

Teddy was very concerned about his flower all the time and always watered his plant with a little watering can by himself. It was so interesting and intriguing for Teddy to watch all the stages of plant’s development, from shoot to flower.

Now we are waiting for the Lorax to come to our back yard. Welcome small lovely orange creature, Teddy has one more tree for you.

The Lorax and Teddy


  1. I admire what you have done here. I like the part where you say you are doing this to give back but I would assume by all the comments that this is working for you as well.
