Wordless Wednesday #28--Sunflowers

Taken September 15, 2007, in West Vancouver, BC.

We've had snow on the ground for over four weeks now. My front yard still looks like it's covered in marshmallow sundae topping. The snowbank in front of the house is no longer taller than I am, but it's going to be there for days yet, if not longer. Most of the snow is in the dirty, crusty, been-around-much-too-long stage. And although buried lawns and shrubs are slowly starting to reappear, my neighbourhood is drab and gray. This picture is a reminder of what's to come.

It's images like this that maintain my hope for an early spring. Between the cold and the wind, it looks like The Apocalypse outside today. This pic warms my soul.

the enormity of sunflowers, together with the beautiful symmetry and cheerful colour, make them the bloom with the greatest appeal. Hope to b able to grow them someday!
