Is there something to these flowers, something that extends beyond the sunny disposition of their name?
Is it the joy that comes from sucking, cracking, and spitting their lightly flavored seeds that makes them so pleasing.
Maybe it's the fact that they look like the celestial rock for which they were named, bright flares of yellow fanning out from the core.
Maybe it is because they look like we often feel, stooped under the pressure of maintaining a constantly sunny disposition.
Whatever the case, sunflowers have an innate ability to create a lasting sense of happiness and peace.
Every garden, and every yard, should be graced with the peaceful happiness that a sunflower brings. They are monsters of happiness, harbingers of summer.
They are happiness to bestow, and a delightful treat for the taste buds.
Sunflowers should be planted on every corner of every town so that even on the gloomy days, we can all enjoy a bit of brightness.
