The Only Sunflower

My mom helped me plant sunflower seeds in the garden back in early July.  Although a few sprouted only one made it to be a big strong giant sunflower.  Yesterday it opened into full bloom.

Even though I planted hafl a dozen sunflower seeds and my mom did the rest I remember how exhausted I felt afterwards.  I had to ask her to fetch me a glass of water as I couldn’t make it to the house myself even though I was the host.  Something about this bright golden flower makes all that seem insignificant.  I grew this.

The one and only sunflower to grow and bloom in my garden this year. Sep 2009.

    well it is a beauty – those petals are so big and glossy – and the central parts so neatly arranged in spirals/curves (i don’t know how to explain that with my mush brain this evening). no sunshine here today so i am feeling the benefit of seeing this burst of sun today, thanks 🙂

    It’s beautiful! I always love sunflowers – they’re just so cheery, aren’t they? A symbol of sunshine and happiness!
