What is summer without sunflowers? My hubby bought these small sunflowers today for me from a man in town selling gladiolus and these small sunflowers from his truck in a parking lot. Aren't they gorgeous? Sunflower meaning is power, warmth, nourishment. Did you know? Sunflowers always point their blooms or face the rising sun in the east. I am thinking it would be neat to have a whole field of these growing. Sunflowers have it all!
