    A promise of ‘sunshine’ within and seeds for the colder weather ahead.

      The birds, particularly Goldfinches, have already found the first ripe seeds and are relishing the heads as they ripen. Their twitters are heard all day long … garden music. πŸ™‚

    Pretty – yours are a bit further ahead than mine:)

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Karina. I’ve found that the ones that self-sow from last year, come up first and flower first (of course) than when I try to guess our frost-free planting date, which changes year to year, a moving target. I’m toying with trying to sow a bunch in the fall and hope the critters don’t find and eat them all. Naturally, they’d be their own bee-created hybrids, which might not be all that bad. πŸ˜‰

    What an unusual and effective take on a sunflower. It almost reminds me of an artichoke πŸ™‚
