It's a love/hate relationship.

























Sunflowers and I have a love/hate relationship.
I once heard that sunflowers are weeds, is that true?
I love how sunflowers pop up all over the place and remind of us how miraculous the earth is.
This flower is bold and powerful- It is a "happy flower".

A sunflower, to me, also symbolizes the end of summer.  When I was little I asked my mom why the sunflowers hadn't come out yet (it was probably the first of June).  My mom told me that sunflowers don't bloom until the end of summer. . . from then on when the sunflowers start blooming it brings me to the realization that school is coming and my favorite season is drawing to an end.
