Sunflowers In Chinese Red Vase, 6 x 6 " oil on panel, ©2013, Fay Terry
I have always loved sunflowers and we usually grow them every summer from seeds. When we were first married, we loved in the country not far from Raleigh and had a huge vegetable garden. We grew sunflowers so we could harvest the seeds to feed the birds in the winter. Now when we grow them I can't keep the birds from eating them all summer, so by the end of the season there are none left to save.
