A few months ago, I wrote about growing sunflowers and saving the flower heads for the birds in winter. You can read my previous post here.
Well last week, my youngest daughter and I took down our regular bird feeder from its hook and then tied up three of our dried sunflowers…
We simply tied string to the end of each sunflower and then tied them to the bird feeder pole.
As you can see, the birds have been enjoying the sunflower seeds.
With spring rapidly approaching, how about planting some sunflowers in your garden? They grow in all climates and aren’t fussy. Besides, you get to enjoy their bright, sunny beauty all summer long.
