I couldn't help it I was out marveling at the "from the birds" sunflowers again today. I'm not alone in my fascination with them. There were about a dozen bumble bees hard at work gathering pollen form them this evening. The bees worked tirelessly and I now have a much clearer understanding of the term "worker bee" and its genesis. I always get a lot of joy watching the little seedlings that I plant grow and flourish, or seeing a perennial I have planted return the following season. I can't get over how happy these accidental sunflowers make me. They are special!
