Here Comes The Sunfower

Earlier this year the Coronavirus pandemic led to a quick sellout of seeds when people realized they were going to be spending more time at home. Sunflowers are easy to grow. Have you noticed more of them standing tall in yards around your neighborhood? This gigantic beauty towered above my head. The tightly packed center florets form spirals, an example of a Fibonacci series. Enjoy these mathematical marvels while you can. Soon the florets will become seeds, the sunflower heads will droop and they will become feasts for the birds.
