If you never driven past a sunflower farm in late September, then this is something you should put on your 'bucket list'. This is my favorite flower for so many reasons. The way it turns its' face to the sun throughout the day. The many shapes, sizes and colors. The beauty of an acre of sunflowers and the same flower is beautiful in a simple kitchen garden. The way the yellow finches, juncos and chickadees flit about feasting on the seeds. And then, next spring, they've reseeded themselves and send up surprises all along the garden path.
