This was inspired by my backyard Gold-phi-nches (goldfinches) that cluster on my sunflowers, brighten my days, and provide hours of entertainment. As someone who has been isolated pre-covid, I am so grateful for the joy that birds bring me. I imagine the flocks propagating sunflowers far and wide to spread the Phi-lowers’ beauty everywhere.
Side-note: I plant sunflowers because they eat both the leaves and the seeds. When I keep the leaves around, then they don’t eat my cucumbers. I do share my broccoli and kale with them; they love the seeds when they bolt.
