sunflower

late this summer, I noticed a peculiar plant growing in the flower bed… was that what I thought it was… I let it grow.

Yes. It was a sunflower. We think a critter planted the seed, because none of us did.

It started late, it’s in a poor location (being in shadow afternoon for the rest of the day), but that little sunflower kept growing. Kept trying. Within the past week, with drizzle and grey, it has finally pushed open the golden flower. Ready to make seeds. I haven’t seen bees for weeks. But that little sunflower, now more than six feet tall, just makes me smile.

You go sunflower!
