" I don't think there's anything on this planet that more trumpets life than the sunflower. For me that's because of the reason behind its name. Not because it looks like the sun but because it follows the sun. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that's such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life." ~ Calendar Girls 2003
From my board: "Obsession"I am obsessed with sunflowers. They strive to find the light no matter what it maybe, they were something inspiring to me growing up with depression. No matter how dim things are around they always try to find the light, no matter how little light it may be. Plus, they are yellow which is pretty!
