The bundle of sunflowers I purchased Saturday morning didn't survive the hot ride and the couple of stops along the way home. As soon as I arrived, I cut the stems and put them in a vase of water, but they were already too far gone to revive completely.
So, I am on to plan #2. I'm either going to let the heads dry and harvest the seeds for next year or I'm going to dry the heads and set them outside for birdfeeders.
Either way their sunny loveliness makes me smile.
