Highest sunflower in Maryland
My sunflower just started blooming. It grew from some seeds that were thrown in a flower pot two years ago. The sunflower is probably the highest in Maryland because it is on top of a 20-story building.
One of the trick questions when I was in elementary school was: "Where is the highest skyscraper in the world?" At the time, the Sears tower had not been built, so the Empire State Building was the logical answer. WRONG! The highest skyscraper is in Mexico City. Since Mexico City is 2250 meters or 7400 feet above sea level (about one and-a-half miles up in the sky), the highest skyscrapers have to be there. If the question had been "Where is the tallest skyscraper in the world?" the answer might have been different.
