Truth be told, there was a time when I didn’t care for sunflowers. They were so big and brassy. Being a tall girl myself, I’ve often wished I could be described as “cute” or “dainty” but that’s just not to be. Especially since as I’ve gotten older, I’ve sprouted an enormous head of frizzy curls that has me looking more and more like a sunflower myself.
Not sure if I’m ever up for being considered brassy – I’d rather be classy – but I have to admire sunflowers. They aren’t ashamed of their size, or their “look-at-me” colour scheme. Tall and proud and just who they are made to be. And that’s something I’m happy to emulate!
