We love to see the sun flowers that we grow in our garden and the garden birds love the seeds. A good deal for both parties I think.
We've had these dead heads in the airing cupboard for a week.








And tonight, we've sat around the garden fire with a glass or red and scraped the seeds from the heads. I think we'll probably put them back into the airing cupboard for a while longer.

If you remember, we planted some of the 'Mammoth' variety but we also did pretty well with seeds straight from the bird food we get.
