Mostly for the Birds!

This Sunflower Head Was Half Eaten by the Birds or Squirrels!

Some Rather Big Slugs on the Leaves! Yuck!

I think this the 'Snack Seed' Variety from Renee's Garden Seeds!
Well, as the season is winding down quickly.  I thought I would comment on sunflowers and how much I love them in the garden.  They are like wallpaper when spread out in the garden.  I love to line them up in the back of our garden plots and they usually feed every bird, squirrel and maybe even the raccoon.  Yes, we definitely have a raccoon in the garden.  He/She made their presence known the other night when it beheaded the sunflowers and tossed the head everywhere in the herb garden.  Not a seed to be found, but plenty of mess!   I usually give my sunflower seeds for planting from Renee's Garden Seeds

Hope you are having a great day.  We have that big inflatable rubber ducky in the local river.  If you jump over to my Facebook page, Nancy Heraud, you can see it.   I'm probably going to get a closeup view later this week.  Will share photos.  It is Homecoming at the local high school.  Happens every year!

They look so pretty and then they feed the wildlife. What's not to love (apart from the messy raccoon).

Thanks Tracey. They are so beautiful and give such good treats. I just love them. xo

Thanks Marcy. Even if I didn't have a garden, I would have to have sunflowers. They just make me happy! xo
