Sunflowers always make me smile...
 

they seem to have smiling faces....
looking up to the sky....
they reach towards the sun...
 

never considered an elegant flower...
some think they are a pest...
I think they are grand...they serve a great purpose...
beauty and food...
not only for us...but for the animals as well...

what would baseball players do without their seeds???
 

 
a cute little video I found on Youtube...
just received word that our friends Mom just passed...
Rest in Peace Mrs. Hawkins....
she ran a daycare at home for years...
she shaped a lot of children's lives...

Sunflowers are great and my DIL' s favorite. I hope my son remembered that today on her birthday!

So sorry about your friend's mom, but oh the legacy she left through shaping children's lives.
