This year I planted some sunflowers (the giant ones) and
I had quite a few volunteers from last year. They were
a smaller, earlier variety.
Saturday morning I had quite a few new visitors.
I think the Phoebe was just waiting her turn, although she
spends a lot of time on the back of these chairs.
I also had quite a flock of goldfinches on the sunflowers.
The birds are the main reason for planting them. They attract
a whole different group of birds in the fall.
