Sunflowers


I absolutely adore sunflowers. They never cease to amaze me, they are big, bright, super easy to grow and the seeds are delicious. I have them around my veggie garden because they attract bees, butterflies and they are so pretty.



And when the seed heads form I will hang them on the fence for the chickens to pick at and the stems are quite strong and can be used as stakes. Not bad for a little bitty seed.

For some reason I never used to like sunflowers, but now I do!!
Have a good weekend.

I love sunflowers too. They always make me smile. A couple have just popped in my garden. I can't wait till a few more come out.

I plan to pick a couple to decorate my kitchen table. The rest I will leave for the birds. :)
