Look what the birds gave us!


 Feeding the birds we often get seeds that seed themselves and grow in the garden. I pull them up, but DH asked that this one could grow
And isn't it a magnificant flower?
A beautuful sunflower and if you are into maths or a teacher you will know that this seed head follows the fibonacci sequence of numbers.
Some thing I taught and grew sunflowers just to demonstrate the sequence in my teaching days.

I am glad DH said to let this one grow, it is a sight to behold each morning.
. Don't you wonder how such a huge flower can grow from such a small dropped seed?
The beauty of nature can't be beaten and it's all a gift from God.

Happy Days everyone xxx

I love sunflowers & this one is a beauty : ) I'm familiar with the fibonacci sequence of numbers but I'm not catching on to how it applies to this sunflower. Please clarify : )

Unfortunately most of what the birds "leave" ends up on my patio, and usually appears to be grass! What a lovely cheery sight!

I did not know that about the number sequence so looked it up. Maybe now I can do some of those mensa math puzzles! lol That is certainly a wonderful gift the birds gave you. At Jaclyn's wedding there was a garden full of sunflowers that helped make the day spectacular!
