This icon is now on my card table.
All you seasoned gardeners may now laugh at me. As the scary, mutant sunflower triffid stalked me from in front of my door, I wondered where the sunflower seeds would come from. Slowly, that first gigantic sunflower lost it's petals and as I was coming up the walk from work today I thought it really needed to be dead headed. Besides having lost all it's petals, the outside of the 'eye' was beginning to look kinda grody too. I step up to the triffid armed with sharp tools (just in case it wants to attack me) and that's when I notice that it isn't some sort of 'grode' in the eye-- it's sunflower seeds! Yeup, I'm that much of a noob. This is the same sunflower that's in my icon: I did a tiny bit of research and have stuck the head in a paper bag to catch the seeds as they dry up more and fall off. Unless ya'll know of another method. I can't tell you how fascinating I'm finding this whole deal. I hope the triffids don't come at me in the middle of the night when they find out I'm gonna eat their babies.
