  6. You know. . . . it never occurred to me that only part of the petals would open to the sun. . duh ~~ this was such a happy gift and it brought back some really sweet memories.

    Sunflowers always remind me of my Grandma, she had a rather large garden next to their farmhouse here in Ohio. Growing up we lived many places but summers were spent with our Grandparents and our cousins at the farm. As a child I would help her (read: bug her ) tend to it, she would let me mess with the scarecrows outfit and fix his straw body ( I always wanted him to look more put together??? for the crows maybe??). We would sit side by side on the steps of the front porch and take the string off of the string beans and peel the protective layers off of the ears of corn and talk or quietly tend to the chore at hand. Fresh tomatoes were part of all the lunches and dinners eaten right there at the kitchen table flooded with the sounds of summer, grandchildren and neighbors.. Many evenings the sun shining in and a gentle breeze blowing through.

    There was such an ease and acceptance of Life, a gentleness and openness as neighbors streamed through the, always opened, screened door right into the kitchen to visit.

    Obviously I could go on and on but this is a comment not a book so I will say Thank you. . .Thank you Laura and Thank you Sunflower for the beautiful reminder of days long past and people long gone but always held close to my Heart.

    ps. Who knew. . .the power of a Sunflower!!:)

  7. Well . . . Thank YOU for prompting the stroll down memory lane, I really needed it ~ a lot of releasing painful emotions lately and these simpler times spent with people I always felt loved by was just the balm my emotional body needed.
