i wonder if sunflowers cheered up van gogh?
bcuz they sure do lift My spirits.
i love their fuzzy middles...
next year maybe i'll grow my own again, because they cost approximately 100 times more to buy than they do to Grow, but on the other hand when you buy 'em you don't have to worry about kids stealing 'em out of your yard like they did with my peonies all during june. to say nothing of squirrels eating the fuzzy middles when they turn into nice fat seeds.
