Sunflower Seeds

A single sunflower sprung up among the hedge around our pool. We surmise that a birdie dropped a seed there after a visit to the feeder. Over time we watched it grow and then bloom. Once it was past it's prime we allowed the sunflower head to dry in the garage. Here's what came next...

....We discussed the intricate pattern of the tiny seeds - Grace loves patterns these days.

....We separated all of the seeds from the head and then counted them - we lost track at well over one hundred.

....And lastly, Grace tossed handfuls of seeds around the garden - in hopes that some will take root so we can start the entire process all over again!
