Sunflowers for Birds
We love the tall sunflowers that are blooming now in our garden. Some we have planted and some, including the ones in these photos, have popped up from seed left in the ground from last year's batch. Not only are they cheery, but they are a serendipitous bounty for the birds. We cut some for vases to decorate our house. Most we leave for the birds who come and eat the seeds as they mature. The goldfinches have already discovered them and fly up as we walk by.
