an abundance of sunflowers
My perennial sunflowers are growing sideways these days, after a weekend of rain that weighed them down, after a summer filled with weather that helped them grow twice as high as usual. Some of them are eight feet tall.
This photo shows just one stem, hanging low over the path to the back field, growing in a place I never planted them.
You have to love a flower that chooses where to live, even if it is a messy, spidery, giant of a plant.
You have to smile at a flower that wraps its stems in sunshine like a pretty row of bows.
And you have to stop and admire a flower so bold it bends right over to bop you on the head as you walk by, just to make sure you are paying attention.
Wishing you a Wednesday filled with sunshine.
