Here is something to brighten your day: Sunflowers are everywhere.

There are many varieties of this charming flower, some edible and others are ornamental. Two weeks ago I decided to plant the edible variety, Helianthus Annuus, from seed. This variety of sunflower grows up to 10 feet in my backyard¬†alongside the¬†lower decorative variety in my front yard as a display for my neighborhood. They are all ready starting to germinate. I can’t wait to share them when they bloom.

I love the sunflower because they provide such vitality and energy. And besides, they are a great food source. More later.
