Summer Sun

FOUND IN: Education, Nature, The Farm on July 23, 2013



They fill the sky like no other. Their intensity is met only by the afternoon heat wave. They amaze, those stalks of pubescent green supporting hefty heads. In a breeze, there seems to be no reason they should stay upright.  But they do.


As if paying homage, they follow the sun. Each one in unison, their angles exactly alike.


Their glow brings sunrise above ground. The hum of bumblebees is the first sound to the ear.


The seeds suggest greatness, plump, strong and firm to the touch. Emerging in days, they growing exponentially.



Bought sunflowers at the farmers market and want to know what to do next. Here are some good tips for care and arranging them.
