Inspired by the sun

What is happier than this? Doesn't she look like she's looking up at God and just welcoming the day? I love the way the face tilts toward the sun.

I had to get in between the corn and the sunflowers to get this picture - but it's so worth it - seeing the dew on her face.  I don't know why I keep calling this one a "her" - it just seems fitting to me.

i love this one bending through my tomato cages.

this one makes my heart sing...  it makes me think she's covering her eyes, not wanting to wake up....

Here's a baby...

and this one, I think this one is a boy sunflower, standing at attention...

I love the way they stand guarding my garden.

Yes, i know it needs to be weeded, and yes, the squash is out of control. and no, the corn did not fair so well this year...but it did give me this...

If this move goes through, this is what I'll miss the most.  This little patch of land, on a dirt road, in the middle of the city. It's given me so much to appreciate the past 4 years.  I've loved it here.

It inspired me to keep.going.  even when i thought i couldn't.  Thank you home. Thank you garden.
