While sunflower season is nearly over here there are still occasional flower heads that you can see along the highway or in a field near the tree line. I'm sure there were plenty of them this year that next year come summer we'll see even more of those bright flowers popping up all over the place and just in time to feed hungry little birds emerging from their nests.
If you are thinking about growing some of your own you can even choose a variety that is something besides yellow. I know that it's the usual color we see but there are so many other varieties out there these days you might find one you just like the look of better. As far as I can tell the seeds taste the same.
