maddie and my dad, "papa bob" planted sunflower seeds back in march when my parents visited for the girls' 4th birthday. maddie was diligent about watering her planted seeds and spent most summer mornings running out onto the back patio in her jammies checking to see if her sunflower had appeared. thank goodness that little seed decided to sprout!
so thank you little sunflower for showing my daughter how compassion and care can create a beautiful thing! her love for nature has been strengthened with your sweet vibrant yellow appearance!
