Flowers must contain magic



Burnt Bridge Creek — Something magical must be in the seeds Crina Person of Northeast 47th Street planted earlier this year. Her theory: love. That’s what must have made her sunflowers grow like Jack’s beanstalk. “So far, every single one has grown at least twice the expected heights, the tallest towering at 14 feet,” she posted on The Columbian’s Facebook page — along with some stunning photos that show the huge stalks dwarfing her 6-foot-tall fence. “It seems to be the joke of the neighborhood,” Person wrote, “for I bought this type of flowers to grow for my vase.”
