Our garden is full of squirrels at the moment, all busy digging and burying food for the winter ahead. And in the depths of winter when they return they’ll probably forget where they buried their treasure and dig up even more of the garden in their frantic search.
A bit like the squirrels, we brought this sunflower seedhead back from the allotment several weeks ago, put it in a safe place (the shed) and promptly forgot about it. It was only when we were searching for a plant pot earlier today that we stumbled across it.
But unlike the squirrels, this one isn’t destined for food. We left most of the sunflower seeds at the allotment for the birds, so this one is for us and we’ll save the seed to plant next year.
Which means it’s a great excuse to get making some fabulous seed packets – watch this space, details coming soon.
