Birds plant their favorite flowers


In our yard, after Mrs. Bathtub (Trophy Wife™) works her wonders in the garden, the soil will grow almost anything.

Birds, even, take advantage of that fact, seeding their favorite plants all over.  They are especially fond of sunflowers and pequin peppers.

If we didn’t use cooked peanuts, the blue jays would make this neighborhood one of the largest peanut fields in the world.

    At the moment we have whatever variety comes in the bird seed, and maybe some maximilians (I’ll have to check with the house botanist to be sure).
