Ah Sunflower, weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the sun;
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveller's journey is done;
She is a gentle giant, ever steady...ever strong. Even with all of the wet conditions in New England this summer, the sunflower sisters have surrounded my garden in all their amazing glory.
Up until this past week, I have not enjoyed my visits to the garden at. all. It's hard to watch one's hard work be destroyed by weather and bugs....but this week has been such a treat. A reward for patience and perseverance, I guess.
The grrls are full of buzzing bees and seeing all the different sizes and shapes of sunny faces looking back at me is truly amazing. I now understand why people plant entire fields of sunflowers.
I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend in your corner of the world!
