“I don't think there's anything on this planet that more trumpets life than the sunflower. For me that's because of the reason behind its name. Not because it looks like the sun but because it follows the sun. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that's such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life." - From the movie, Calendar Girls.
This is a picture of our grandson Reid and his sunflowers. Every year for the past 3 years he comes down and plants sunflowers in alittle garden area near our house. It's "his area" and he loves doing this. He can hardly wait to see them all in bloom. LaVern orders the seed from Park Seeds and he gets some really unusual sunflowers. Tall, short, red, orange and yellow. A couple of the plants are taller than the privacy fence so I can enjoy them out the kitchen window. I always think of the movie quote when I see them. So many lessons in life in simple things.
