The other day, neighbour Krista knocked on my door. In her hand was the most ENORMOUS dried sunflower head. A friend of hers had grown them and had wondered if I would like one to serve up a Squirrelington’s.
Naturally, I said yes.
It took a while for the patrons to come around…
And they were definitely not sure what to make of that giant thing. Eventually, they got used to the idea of it being there, but they still preferred the peanuts…
But while the squirrels weren’t interested, someone was.
Every time I checked, there were more and more seeds gone.
It took a bit, but I was finally able to capture a picture. It’s not a great one, but it’s clear who the sunny snacker is.
Within a day or so, the whole head was empty of seeds. But don’t worry, I did save some to grow next year!
