Sunshine of the plant world

   Sunflowers have been brightening neighborhoods once covered in floodwaters.

Linn County Master Gardeners Deb Walser and Mary Prendergast suspect the sunflowers could have been dislodged and moved from area gardens by the floodwaters, or floated away as seeds from bird feeders during the floods.

   Corn has also been sprouting in the median of I-380 that was once covered by floodwater.   That seed or the young plants, probably came from adjacent fields.
