The Really Great Sunflower Project
This is the one sunflower I managed to grow from my free packet of sunflower seeds for the Great Sunflower Project. They are trying to track the number of honey bees in urban areas. As you can see there are two honey bees! How exciting. My very scientific job entails sitting and watching the plant for 30 minutes and counting how many bees land on it. The main issue is finding 30 daylight minutes with my busy bee daughter running around. It was a miracle I found 30 seconds to take this photo. But if I don't get around to in the next few days- this sunflower plant has two more unopened flower buds- I will not let my scientific community down. But so far- so good in the San Antonio organic garden.
