The sunflowers have burst into bloom! Nothing more beautiful and more 'summery' than sunflowers. I love them.
But I didn't plant them.
I have a whole pot FULL of sunflowers. At the moment, over twenty buds or blooms.
Birds? Squirrels? Who should I thank? Do you think they just happened to dump some seeds in the pot? Or maybe they planted me a little 'thank you' gift for their winter food?
Chances are good, though, that they are just ensuring that they will have a meal next season.
They know they can't rely on what I planted...
