Sunflower heads

Sunflowers are amazing! They follow the same Fibonacci pattern (math sequence) of almost everything in nature – as shown in this cool video. Growing nice big sunflowers is all fun and games… and they make great fall decorations. But keeping those sunflower heads safe from birds and mice until it’s time to hang them up is serious business. I’ve learned from experience to keep them inside, and up off the ground. First they hang in the garden shed where it’s warm and dry. When they are completely dry, I store them in paper bags hanging in a closet or the garage (using a wreath hanger over the cupboard door works great).
