Thursday, 10 July 2008 - Sunflowers

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for sunflowers.

My favorite Tour de France images show the peloton riding along a sunflower-lined road.

So, with the 2008 race in full swing, I'm not surprised that my garden's crop decided to bloom a month early.

July sunflowers
Wear familiar colors.

Sturdy green stalks

Support sun kissed blossoms,

Rich rust centers
Framed by bright yellow petals.

These early birds

Are two feet shorter

Than their August siblings,

But just as happy to see me.

For this blessing, I am grateful.
