Sunflower seeds

I finally cut down the sunflowers. They were just so HUGE and bending over with the weight. So this evening I set to and took off all the seeds. Hundreds and hundreds of seeds.
Maybe this coming year I will tour One Seed again in British Columbia, and give out sunflower seeds to the children...
What do you think?
It's been a few years since I toured One Seed. It's time I did it again. Such fun.

New art from Oregon

What a wonderful surprise in the mail yesterday, a package of art from Lake Oswego in Oregon. Four and five-year-olds have created wonderful drawings that will be posted in the One Seed Kids Art Gallery. So keep your eyes peeled. They will be up in the gallery by the end of the week.
Don't you just love surprises!

PS the 10 foot sunflowers shown in my previous posting are now bending over heavy with the seeds that have formed... the flowers are BIG, dinner plate size... I have to let the seeds mature then I'll be taking the plants down. The seeds will be perfect to give to children should I tour One Seed in British Columbia next Spring.
