Sunflowers


Local gardens are full of sunflowers! The top flower here has dropped a frosting of pollen onto the leaf below.
Sunflowers have been domesticated for more than four thousand years (first in Mexico), and have been used to symbolize the sun in many cultures.

Sunflowers make me smile. I haven't seen any around here yet...but it won't be long. It is a beautiful photo.
