As a plant, Sunflowers are amongst my favourite. There’s something about them that just appeals to me. This one is growing through the path in the middle of the veggie patch.
This part of the veggie patch is near the bird table. So, either the starlings or the pigeons, who are not particularly neat eaters – indeed, I’ve seen them throw seed quite a distance in there exuberance. Either that or they are disgusted at the contents of the table. Which doesn’t really hold up seeing as I have to replenish it every day.
Anyhow, I suspect I may be too late for this batch of sunflowers, but next years, if some grow again I may look into giving them a bit of a mollycoddle.
