    That's very cute, but your birds in Colorado must eat like the proverbial sparrow!

    I planted sunflower seeds on my fence in our backyard. So far no sunflower has arisen in that site. I have a feeling the birds ate the Sunflower seeds. We have a Finch feeder, a water receptacle, that looks like a very large drop of water and two sweet water feeders along the fence in our backyard. I am going to try again but plant the seeds in doors and then plant them in the ground.

      If you plant them liberally you are more apt to have some grow. We have had some wild sunflowers that were bird planted and the birds just love them. It is so fun to watch they as they feed on the seeds and I don't have to have a feeder to fill! They never get all the seeds so I always seem to have volunteers coming back each year. I plan to take some with me when I move and plant some domestic ones as well. Once started and well watered they seem to spread easily!

    I love these and enjoy looking in my yard and seeing them scattered around the yard. I found some miniature teacups and saucers at my thrift store and also have used them for butterflies. It adds such a whimsical touch to the yard.

    I planted sunflowers last year that didn't come up. The squirrels got them. If you put talcum powder in the dirt when you plant them the critters will leave them alone. The same goes for planting bulbs. I forgot to do that last year. It really works.
