I won’t have sunflowers for much longer and it’s not due to our weather getting cooler. It’s because of a city bylaw notice.
Yesterday we got a notice from the city that we have one week to trim our sunflowers down to three feet as they are over grown and I suppose obstructing our driveway view. Well darn … we don’t use our driveway much – we only drive our car about once a week. Grrrr.
You can’t trim sunflowers, they die when you cut them in half … plus some of our sunflowers only have flowers at the top.
I guess I’ll be saying good bye to our flowers and the yellow finches that love to sit in them and eat the seeds.
