The gardening gloves are coming off as people try and claim the title of having Norfolk's tallest sunflower.
On Monday Karen Browne, of Caister, was proudly pictured with her award-winning sunflower, that had reached an impressive 11ft 3in.
In response to the picture people got in touch with us to show off their sunflowers.

Sarah Holmes, of Drayton, sent in a picture of herself with several of her towering flowers.
Scott Lister, of Great Hockham, near Thetford, sent in a picture of himself with a 12ft 11in sunflower.
