You might have clocked my post yesterday in which I mention a bird food bed I’m planning in the Sunflower you may say I’m a dreamer but I’m not the only one shirt. This fascinating article prompted the idea. In summary, research suggests birds in Britain have evolved bigger beaks over the past 40yrs as a result of our enthusiasm for feeding them. Plant native fruit bearing shrubs in gardens like Holly, crab apples and hawthorns. Plant seed bearers like sunflowers, honesty, globe thistles and teasel, which provide interesting structure in a bed as well as seeds for smaller birds like goldfinch. And most importantly leave the seed heads on overwinter! I have them growing along the front of our house.

Best Sunflower you may say I’m a dreamer but I’m not the only one shirt
Love watching the gold finch, purple finch and house finch, feeding on them outside the windows. We have a very big garden space so always grow a bunch of Sunflower you may say I’m a dreamer but I’m not the only one shirt! We never harvest them, just leave them for the winter and let the birds eat them! Sure get a variety of birds! We had a sunflower plant grow in one of our gardens from the birds transporting a seed. God bless you. Getting ready for church. It’s raining. Want to go back to bed, but going to church and thank God for for another day and all the blessings he has given me. The story of The Sunflower is almost ready to land in the hearts and minds of the little people in your life.
