Volunteer Sunflower and Me on Christmas Day
I love this sunflower so much that I asked my dh to take this photo on Christmas Day.
We have been watching this sturdy plant which was not planted by us, and is a true volunteer. It pushed up through the soil on about November 1, maybe thanks to some dear bird gardener. No one in their right mind would plant a sunflower seed here in November. It even survived some very cold frosty nights, when I had to scrape frost from my car's windows in the morning.
What a gallant flower friend, and for me, a symbol of God's caring and hope for the future.
