Winter is just barely here and I'm thinking about sunflowers. Great big bright sunflowers. Brian planted a bunch 2 years ago and they wanted to take over the garden this summer. It was so fun to have them popping up all over the place. The birds and bees loved them. The kids loved them. I loved them. When I'm freezing cold - which I am often these days - I like to think warm thoughts. So here's a little reminder that even though winter has just gotten started, summer will make an appearance again.
