That’s one big sunflower!

Maddalena DeLuca didn’t quite expect her sunflower to get as big as it did when she planted it in June.

The local nine-year-old planted the sunflower at the side of her parents’ business, the Waterfront Ice Cream Parlour, after studying plants with her Grade 3 class with teacher Stephanie Kenny at École St.-Jean Baptiste.

“I watered it every day,” she said.

Arianna, 6, and Maddalena DeLuca, 9, stand with the huge sunflower Maddalena grew at the side of her parents’ business, the Waterfront Ice Cream Parlour.

Her mother Jen said it finally flowered Aug. 25 and they measured the sunflower to be over ten-feet in height.

The young gardener said it was the first time she tried her hand in the garden and is open to doing more in the future.
