I’ve been watching this sunflower, because I wasn’t sure if it was going to bloom.
With all of the tall Mammoth sunflowers growing in the garden,
this particular flower took a hit early in the growing process.
The stem of the flower is lying on the ground like a garden hose.
Even with this nasty cut and the poor connection to the main sunflower plant,
this sunflower slowly opened.
Trauma, wounds, being wounded, letting others down…these things happen in life.
Bloom no matter what the circumstances are!
