One day this impressive sunflower started to grow and grow, and eventually bloom. I try and imagine how this happened. Did a satiated bird drop it? Did the wind carry it? How is it fell into soil, that might might hold enough moisture for it to grow into maturity? What is the name of this sunflower? And now, how many birds will it nourish and feed?
My philosophy on volunteers in the garden, is to let them thrive where they have planted themselves. Whether it is tomato plants, pumpkins, sunflowers, volunteers tend to be a delight. They thrive against the odds. Nature and its wonderment.
I'm sharing a little sunshine with you today. Please share if you have a great volunteer story. Please comment if you grow sunflowers.
