Wordless Wednesday: Who Ate My Sunflower?

Female Goldfinch on Sunflower

Almost wordless: This was a gorgeous sunflower a few days earlier. While I plant flowers with the wildlife in mind, it would be nice if Mrs. Goldfinch waited a few weeks for the flower to die naturally so we could all enjoy it!

    Love the photo. I was trying to figure out what to plant next year in an empty spot in my garden. I think you just helped me figure it out – sunflowers!

    Ha! That expression is great.

    When I saw the title of your post I guessed that it must’ve been a goldfinch before I even read it! At least you made HER happy.

    Great capture! But really, where were her manners?

    Mrs. Goldfinch was still there this morning. Having finished up the first flower she was tearing up a second one and singing beautifully while she did it. I’m pretty sure she has a nest nearby.

    Definitely looks like she’s enjoying it! We planted sunflowers seeds (two varieties) twice this summer, and I think the weather has just been too cool for them to sprout. Either that or the birds have been stealing them out of the soil. I’ve never had trouble growing them before though, so it’s very odd. But we have had an unusually cool summer here (we’ve got to be one of the few places in the US to be able to say that). Right now it’s 60 degrees outside and we’ll probably be in the 70s later today. Normally at the end of July temps are approaching 100 here.

    Awesome catch! I grew sunflowers last year and the same thing happened. I wasn’t lucky enough to catch the culprit in the act, though. Great job!
