  1. beautiful little sunflower, Doug! I didn’t plant any this year, but one “Inca Jewel” sunflower came up on its own. The little birds will enjoy eating seeds out of the seed heads this fall.

    • Yes, that’s the problem, with trying to grow them! There are farmers in my county who grow them commercially. A whole field of these flowers is something to see once they come into bloom! Also, they grow wild along roads in this state and others. You’d think the birds would have had their fill…

  2. This is true brilliance! The writer has stepped to centre stage with a project with an ingenue! You just wanted to prove you could make it without the stars of the show. They better not find out!
