In Search of the Sun

This hasn't been the sunniest of summers.

But we have had our best crop of sunflowers ever.

C and the boys planted them in a little circle of soil that used to be our strawberry patch, only it never produced much in the way of strawberries.

Our poor sunflowers are a little confused, though. The house and an old, half-dead apple tree block the evening sun, so most of them just keep facing east all day long.

I wonder if they miss having the sun on their faces as much as I do?

  1. I think--sun or not--the ones in our area enjoyed the cooler weather this year. Last year it felt like they burnt before they could really bloom.
