Persistance of the Sunflower

This was a neat pic. I have sunflowers lining my walk to my door at my house. The front couple of flowers had been hacked down, who knows how. The second time this happened I didn't pull up the sunflower. It had clearly been hacked near the base as you can see in this picture. The stem had browned and the plant started to wilt and I figured I could have it start composting right there. But after some rain and a few days, the plant started to grow without roots. It was unreal. There was nothing coming from the base stem, but it was starting to bloom. Then yesterday it started to wilt again. I wish E.T. would stop by and give it another jolt or something.
