Hello. I am wondering whether in a sentence, including a main clause and an absolute phrase, it is possible to change the main clause into an absolute phrase and vice versa.
1- A thick growth of sunflower stood ten feet tall, their brown heads drooping over the fence with the weight of their seeds.
Can I rewrite
2- A thick growth of sunflower standing ten feet tall, their brown heads drooped over the fence with the weight of their seeds.

That doesn't work for me.
(I'd pluralise 'sunflowers'.)
