Sunflower magic didn't work for me? :(

My friend Mark wrote that on his daughter’s last day of preschool, her teachers sent every kid home with a packet of seeds and told them:
"When these bloom, you'll be ready for kindergarten."
And look at one of her sunflowers today—the same day kindergarten’s starting!

Isn't that great? However, below is the sunflower that I planted at the start of summer.
Looks like it's back to preschool for me… AGAIN.

Hey Will,

Cool! Thank you for the note—I really appreciate it. :)

If Powell's doesn't have Superheroes, I'm going to be pretty mad. Let me check...

Okay, yes, they have it! There are copies downtown, at the Beaverton branch, and one copy in the Hawthorne store. Hopefully one of those is close to you?

All the best!
Bart
