Saturday is May Day (which means immigration rallies) and a Big Sunday weekend volunteer day, but it's also "International Sunflower Guerrilla Gardening Day."

For the fourth year, guerrilla gardeners all over the world will be creating sunflower gardens in some unexpected places. You can get in on the action by being a guerrilla gardener yourself, of course. Not sure how? "All you need are the seeds, something to poke a hole 2cm in the ground and a bit of imagination," they say, but some specific tips are available, too.

Hopefully we'll see all sorts of cheery surprise sunflower gardens cropping up all over Los Angeles on Saturday.
