Or rather the squirrels are in the process of eating our sunflowers. We have gathered some of the seeds, but I honestly think the kids are enjoying watching the squirrels eat the seeds much more! Every time Fritz notices a squirrel climbing on the sunflower he squeals “Kitty!” One time he climbed up and got the camera down from the very high place we have it now and stood there making sounds like he was taking pictures of the “kitty” as it ate.
After the squirrels have their meal and leave the kids are just fascinated looking at the half shells and bits of flower on the ground. They especially like looking for whole sunflower seeds that the squirrel knocked loose but didn’t eat.
