Beverly and The Sunflower Harvest

They aren't standing to greet the sun like they used to do.  The heat has finally reached the sun flowers, true lovers of the sun.
Beverly sometimes takes her car straight to the garden when she arrives.  No fancy equipment for her, no siree!  Use what you got is her motto and she does it so well.
It is sad that the sunflowers have reached their peak but oh, I can just taste those seeds!
What we don't eat will be fed to our feathered friends.

It must be fun getting all those seeds out. That would be a job for me. I will have to plant sunflowers next year just for that fun job. They sure were pretty.

There is always some gain to dying, I suppose. In this case, food. And so goes the circle of life.

So sad to see them all laying prone on the car. I love cheerful sunflowers. I'm amazed that they are ready to harvest now, too.
Ours are nowhere near ready and already the nights are getting cooler and cooler down into the low60's.
Fall will be here soon...and I want some sunflower seeds, too. hehe!

Apples will be ready next month, though. I can't wait!

Enjoy!
