Sunflower Seeds

Squirrel on the fence

We sneaked a few days away last week for a little cycling break up on the North Norfolk coastal area – beautiful! While we were away our youngest son, who was keeping house for us, sent this photo of a squirrel eating the sunflower seeds from one of our dead sunflowers.

When I went to investigate on our return I found no evidence of the sunflower head at all, it had been completely bitten off. There was no sign of it on the ground nearby. I think he must have carried it off and possibly buried it. I’m now a little worried that next year I might have sunflowers popping up in all the most unlikely spots in the garden!

    😀 I found out that the ground hogs like to eat the milkweed. They’ll take the leaves, heads, and stem. Darn! I was looking butterflies, especially the Monarchs to have at those plants. But at least I do have other plants that the butterflies like and the ground hogs don’t!
