First thing every morning I like to look out our upstairs bedroom window down at the garden below. My dad gave us this amazing castor bean plant as a seedling and now it looks like something that belongs in a jungle! This photo is taken through our bedroom window screen so it isn't very clear. It does, however, show how large the leaves are.
Here are two more from ground level.
This plant is over 7 feet (2 m) tall and still growing.
The other thing that is very noticeable in the garden is that the pumpkins are turning orange already!
