A Class of Smilers!

We love France and in particluar the Loire. If you visit during the summer months you will be treated to acres and acres of sunshine – sunflowers.

I love them and they have alwyas reminded me of a class of smiling children. They begin the day very sleepy with heads down with apparently no intentions of taking part in the day. Gradually they lift their heads and follow the warmth and begin to take interest in the hours that are passing.

At the height of the sun, they are fully engaged in life with heads facing the sun – smiling broadly. As their source of warmth sinks below the horizon they return to their shyness with heads bowed ready for another day of fun tomorrow!

I had a go at growing some this year but I’m so ashamed of them that I couldn’t possibly show you. I obviously got the naughty class!

Do pop over to Sticky Fingers to see some more Yellow for this week’s Gallery!
