The sunflowers reach for the sun
they don’t know that the summer…
the summer is done.
Still bursting with tiny, green, closed buds
and the mother plant proudly presenting
the huge yellow sunflowers that I love.
It will only take one frosty night
and then my beautiful sunflowers
you will no longer be mine.
To the ground, to the ground
sunflower petals and seeds will fall
but I know…I know you will come back
shooting up in the spring, then
once more my sunflowers
you will be mine
until the first frost of fall.
It’s so sad when summer goes away.
I thought if my love was strong enough
Maybe this time she would stay.
So, I chased the sunshine
I kissed the sunflowers
I danced with honeybees
I nurtured wildflowers.
I ran with the butterflies
I played in the sunshine
For hours and hours and hours.
I grew daisies and vegetables
And embraced the sun showers.
I woke each morning and chased the day
Then followed the sun’s departure
As daylight slowly drifted away.
I loved this summer like it was my first,
my last and everything in-between
and when the snow covers my windows
I’ll close my eyes and I’ll dream…
I’ll dream of summer.
Sweet Little Wildflower
she rose above it
dancing in the wind…
Someone asked me why I water the weeds around my home and I said, “Because many of the weeds I have watered, turned out to be wild flowers.”
Just For you
Our God Reigns.
Lord, guide and protect my loved ones today. Keep them safe.
Protect America from those trying to destroy our freedom. You know exactly who they are.

Live Laugh Love
A tiny butterfly landed on my new butterfly bush. It has been blooming for three weeks, so I was starting to wonder.
I wish I had two…
