I love sunflowers. They are so beautiful. They are like little bits of the sun shining brightly here on earth. I love this quote from the movie Calendar Girls, by Helen Mirren too. It just kind of says it all.
Here in Colorado, sunflowers are in full bloom, both in our gardens and in the wild. I am seeing sunflowers everywhere.
In the wild.
Sunflowers that have been “tamed” in the gardens, although I don’t think you can ever fully “tame” a sunflower. Maybe that’s why I love them so much. I too am a wildflower that flourishes best when left alone.
The sunflowers in my garden are just beginning to bloom. They are are little more shy than some of the others though, so it is taking them longer to open up.
As beautiful as all these sunflowers are, they are nothing in comparison to what I saw today. I was supposed to meet a friend for breakfast, but our wires got crossed and she had to cancel. I did not get the message until I was already where I was supposed to meet her. But it all worked out, as things usually do. If I had received her message I would not have discovered this absolutely AMAZING sunflower garden. Other than the streams and fields of sunflowers in Nebraska, this is the most spectacular array of sunflowers I have ever seen, and they were in someone’s front yard, for everyone to see.
Their whole yard was nothing but sunflowers, with the exception of one little tiny patch of purple.
Stay safe and stay well Everyone. Let the sunshine in. ‘Til next time.
