the lone sunflower

Sometimes a seed just wants to grow. I planted sunflowers last year and they did poorly. I planted some this year and they didn’t even sprout. Except this guy. The one that I didn’t plant. Somehow this lone seed decided to grow 25 feet from the area where I had planted the sunflowers. It is a pleasant sight to see when pulling into the driveway!

I think he’s cute. That’s what I keep telling my man, but he doesn’t buy it. To him, this little varmint is stealing what isn’t his. The cyclinder full of tasty treats hung in the same place for over a year before the squirrels decided that the seed on the ground wasn’t enough for them. They have recently figured out several ways to get onto the feeder. In a never-ending search to prove that we are smarter than squirrels, we are moving to more drastic measures: the Squirrel Buster Plus. The feeder ports close when the squirrel tries to gain access. I’m hoping that it arrives tomorrow!
