“A satellite dish for sunshine…”

We plant flowers that are supposed to be perennials in the back garden .  But they die out, and two years later reappear in the front garden. Ah, nature! These are Rudbeckia hirta, a type of sunflower commonly known as Black-Eyed Susan or coneflower, and they are blooming now in my corner of Northeast Georgia.  …

Stand tall and find the sunlight…

The growing season for sunflowers may be over, but this lovely mural (photographed on a very rainy day) is a reminder always to look toward the sunlight.   I want to be like a sunflower; so that even on the darkest days I will stand tall and find the sunlight.  (Anonymous)
