After one of our recent, infrequent rainstorms, we found this sad sunflower looking as though it had seen better days. She was much more vivacious when seen in Mwah! Air Kisses.
With its dinner-plate size and bright colors, it reminded us of the old Richard Harris song, “MacArthur Park.” It’s getting close to time for harvesting the seeds… only this morning, we found a squirrel hanging off of her, an unseemly end to such a beauty.
