When we first moved into our house, a sunflower plant spontaneously sprouted in the back yard. The blooms were so vibrant and cheery that we let it grow and we enjoyed the beauty of this wildflower. The next year, 3 sunflowers grew. The next year, there were even more! Now, 8 years later, we have to pull out some of the sunflowers or else they will completely take over the back part of our yard! We always enjoy watching them grow and seeing how tall they get. They used to be giants compared to our kids and now that the kids are nearly full grown, the sunflowers still tower over them, just not as much as they used to! The sunflowers burst into full bloom in July and August and they are an image that I always associate with late summer. As I contemplated the theme for August's "Occasions" category, I couldn't think of a better subject than my beautiful sunflowers! I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do!
