|The goldfinches have feasted on these seeds.|
|Sunflowers are cheerful bee magnets.|
|All of the sunflowers in this post are volunteers from seeds the birds missed last year.|
As you can see from the photos above, some of their blooms have already faded to the seed stage, but other buds have still not opened yet.
To keep the party going longer, I added some 'Velvet Queen' sunflowers from Southern Exposure.
Those are still in the seedling stage, but they are growing fast and strong!
