Sun Flower

It's not hard to guess why these flowers are called sunflowers. They look like a tiny petaled sun here on earth.
Vincent Van Gogh captured sunflowers and one of them is housed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
But I've also seen them in arrangements at exclusive restaurants, and in weddings. Jilda often uses them in arrangements here at the farm. 
 I wish I could paint, but that's a medium I've never explored. But I can snap a photo with my trusty phone.

    There is no such thing as bad art.

  9. Sunflowers are our favorite to grow. Every year we see if we can grow them higher than the year before.

    Ours won't bloom until September though...
