Running to improve memory

Some of my sunflowers have just one big head. This one has multiple heads. How to depollinate these? I've brought some inside only to have a big mess. Lilies are easy to remove the stamens from These have lots of microstamens

Running apparently does more than build stamina, reduce weight(except for me!), improve the cardiovascular system and improve mood. Recent studies show that it stimulates the growth of neurons in the hippocampus, the area responsible for maintaining memories. It was previously thought that we are born with all the neurons we are going to have, which for the most part, is true except in a small section of the hippocampus.
Still steamy out.  I amused myself fertilizing my flowers. Sadly my garden does not look so nice. The blazing stars are now black stalks; the coneflowers look similarly ghastly. More mums are blooming and I still have my annuals.
