sunflowers--without petals

So--here's how the last arrangement I posted has evolved. Pulled the spent petals off some aging flower heads and added some more from the garden. For the record, I'm learning why most people don't grow huge sunflowers. When they fall down (or when you need to remove them) it's like removing a tree--lots of debris, a stalk like a trunk, and roots that want to take lots of garden soil with them. I spent about 3 hours tearing out a patch of spent sunflowers at Flower Camp on Saturday. When it was all over, I thought this must be the way a lumberjack feels!
