Something About Sunflowers

I LOVE sunflowers

A contrast between delicate
and strong

A variety of components
all working together to make
something beautifully unique

A name perfectly suited ...
a ray flower with each petal
ensconcing the center

A yellow flower that looks amazingly
similar to the 'sun' I drew
when I was a little girl

And another point of symbolism with this majestic flower ...
it's one of the rare ones that looks as gorgeous when it's dying
as it does when it's full of life.

Sounds a bit like a life lesson to me ...

The petals are closing in, signs that the days of living are almost gone.

Yet they still stand ... gorgeous, strong & tall.

Thank you, Gunnar & Abigail, for blessing me on Mother's Day.

Who doesn't love a good party?!

  1. Angela,
    I love, LOVE, L O V E SUNflowers!!!
    "Mr. Ed" grows SUNflowers here on the Prairie. . .just for me!!!
    We donate the area against the privacy fence deemed The SUNflower Patch, just for SUNflowers!!!
    Instead of bringing them inside, we enjoy them from the Patio doors off our Dining Room!
    We allow the SUNflowers to dry naturally, leaving the seeds for the birds that frequent our feeders.
    Thank you for sharing my favorite Flower, e v e r!!!
