The last of summer

Sunflower sketch in ink and watercolour

I love sunflowers and grow a few different types each year. Normally by August they have been and gone and by now the seeds have been dried for next year and some shared with the birds. This year we had a new bird feeder with three different feeding stations and in one I put some sunflowers seeds.

Unfortunately/fortunately the wood pigeons who are really too big for the feeder knocked it off and whilst I was sure I had picked up all the spilt seed I couldn't have done a very good job. Much to His Nibs dismay we now have sunflowers that have grown up through the lawn. He is under strict instructions to mow around them.
