I planted a few sunflowers from seed in my veggie garden this year and this is one of only two that managed to fight through the weeds into flower status.  I already see little birds eyeing this one up, so I took a photo for posterity. Next year I’ll try to plant more.

DEAD Robin…hummmm

A robin died behind a waterspout located in my flower garden last spring. This spring, while cleaning up the garden, I found the remains, including the skull.

Robin skull

It’s amazingly fragile, except for the beak. I now know why you don’t see little bird skulls all over the place.

I buried the rest of the body and left the skull nearby, like a grave marker.
