It’s a rainy day in Sardegna today. The skies are filled with grey heavy clouds, the wind barely stirs the tree tops and the animals are content with the cool showers. On days like this I crave the lemon-yellow sun, but knowing she won’t make a grand entrance, I’m content watching my babies grow. I planted them on March 21st, 2011 and finally, they have flowered. Besides my three beautiful young nieces, there is nothing more pleasing than these beauties.
I haven’t the greenest thumb in the book, this I have learned from experience. Every house plant I have received as a gift is dying or is dead. I scour the internet for advice on how to keep my plants alive and tend to these words. But alas, they always fail me. The only thing I can grow and grow good are these stunning sunflowers. They have never failed me.
I am the Sunflower Queen.
