Weekend Snapshot: Following the Sun
This sunflower grew up in my parents' backyard compliments of some bird or other interloper who dropped the seeds there. It grew to about eight feet tall, and we could watch the blossom follow the sun the way flowers magically do. Now, as summer fades into the cool of September, the flower stands with its head bowed; the work is done. Next year there will likely be many a sunflower in the backyard, thanks to the mysterious first sower of seeds and this one blossom. It really doesn't take a lot to make the world beautiful. Just have to let it be.
