Sunflowers are coming soon...

We had two beds with sunflowers last year and were keeping the heads on them to harvest seed from (and for the birds). Then the squirrels found them, and made a mess... but it means we had lots of dropped seed and they have just started to germinate and grow strongly. Not exactly where we would like them but we can always move them around and we hope our visiting cub group will sow some more seed.

More self-sown sunflowers in the sunflower bed. We tie them to the metal coat racks.
