Each year I plant an array of sunflowers, even a wall of beautiful varieties and sizes.
This year, the seeds I planted did not sprout, I believe the birds that live among the trees enjoyed a luscious feast.
Perhaps I didn’t dig deep enough, or the distractions of one good hand and a trip to the other side of the world took over my thoughts.
Regardless the precious rays of sunshine will not beam this year. Feeling reminiscent I looked through the photos of last year.
Sunflowers as you may see are my favorite flowers. They hold so much meaning and substance, beauty and strength.
I remember seeing sunflowers in Thailand though not the fields I had heard of so feeling curious I did a search.
I was horrified to see these images, never in my dreams would I wish this, people riding on the backs of these dear elephant in these magnificent fields!
This is not a picturesque moment, this is torture!
