I figured out a great reuse for a grape sack. This plastic bag has perforations so air can flow as the seeds mature but hopefully the birds won’t get this one. I feed the birds and the bees but try to save seeds from all my favorites. #sunflowers#helianthus#girasol#sunfloro#bloomstakes#global_nature_yellows#fractalsinnature#yellowmazing#helianthusannus#instaflowers#flowerpower#petal_perfection#memphis#4s#901#memphispeople#macro#urbangarden#growsomethinggreen#gardening#homegrown#mybackyard#savethebees#growfoodnotlawns#plantasunflower

I confess I have no idea if this is a mutation or infestation. ‘It came from within’. This is the only one of 19 flowers on one sunflower with err spots? The #fibonacci sequence is outtawhack for sure. #sunflowers#helianthus#girasol#sunfloro#bloomstakes#global_nature_yellows#fractalsinnature#yellowmazing#helianthusannus#instaflowers#flowerpower#petal_perfection#memphis#4s#901#memphispeople#macro#urbangarden#growsomethinggreen#gardening#homegrown#mybackyard#savethebees#growfoodnotlawns#plantasunflower

If you aren’t lucky in love enough to have a patch of sunshine at your house, you can find potted sunflowers 2 for 10 at Whole Foods on Poplar. That’s actually not a bad deal if you save the seeds for next year. #sunflowers#helianthus#girasol#sunfloro#bloomstakes#global_nature_yellows#fractalsinnature#yellowmazing#helianthusannus#memphis#4s#901#macro#urbangarden#growsomethinggreen#gardening#homegrown#mybackyard#savethebees#plantasunflower
