Sunflowers Along the Way

I walk past this house each morning. This is the view I see when I’m on my way back home.
This is Chauncy’s home and they keep it looking really beautiful.  It’s always well cared for and I enjoy seeing it.  In the spring, the flower bed in the foreground has tulips.  The sign that bears their name in the bed is the little Dutch boy and girl.
Notice the sunflowers at the edge of their yard.  Through the summer walk, I saw these sunflowers grow tall and taller. They finally bloomed at the beginning of last week.  The blooms were quite small as they opened, unlike what you’d expect from the size of the plants. But each day they got a little bigger and now they fit the stalks perfectly.  I loved watching this progress.
When I walk to the high school, I see the back of the sunflowers.  The flower heads face east, waiting for the sunrise, so I took the picture on the way home.  I really like seeing this yard, and I think the sunflowers are really great.

About NJ

I love to write! I realized in 9th grade that I really enjoyed writing. Every two weeks we had assigned topics that we were to use to write an essay. I liked writing the essays. I'm a mom and a grandma. None of my family live nearby, but they visit when they are able to come. I've been a pastor's wife and a grade school teacher. Now I'm retired and enjoying visiting others, and indulging myself in my hobbies, --writing and art activities. I'm very thankful for the blessings in life.

    A lot of the yards I pass are well kept, but this one always appeals to me. I know it takes a lot of work to keep it looking so nice and they have a lot of extras. Thanks for the comment, Sally.
