13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sunflower Wonder~

This Sunflower was planted by my mother in honor of my son who passed away. When he was young we would plant beautiful Giant Sunflower gardens...rows of green with yellow heads....beautiful from seed to bloom.....the end of the flower always representing the beginning of next year's garden. We handed out sunflower packets at his celebration of life...this will be the second Spring we have begun without him. My mother's Sunflower bloomed early this year and I had to capture it in all of its splendor~
