A Seed Bonanza

One of my recent-years plant acquisitions has really come through for the seed eating birds, such as the American Goldfinch.  These helianthus plants had a bumper crop of flowers---and now seeds.  I've seen Goldfinches poking around in the plants and from what I can see are getting seeds out.  Sunflower seed feeders are nice to have, but it's just as nice and more important to offer more variety.  And I won't mind if some helianthus gets spread around.  Lord knows we get enough creepy exotics coming in.  I hope these developments make the property more attractive.  People can admire the vivid flowers.  Birds get a well rounded diet.  All win!
