The Last Sunflowers of Summer
Before I tore my tendon in my left leg, I planted sunflower seeds that I saved from two years ago. I did not water them much this year; however, they managed to get enough moisture from the summer rains. I also did not tie them back so they would not fall over the driveway. Last week I had to cut them down, but I saved 2 sunflowers and brought them into the house and stuck them in a vase. The following day I took their picture. I like this composition of color and I am likely to do something with it. Perhaps another sunflower painting to remember my summer of 2011.
Everyone have a safe and nice weekend. And, hopefully Donald Trumps' hair can cause hurricane Irene to turn out to sea and not hit the east coast.
