Garden of Sunflower

It is delightful to see a special guest appeal in my garden.  I don't recall how long I have been planted them from the seeds in my garden, maybe... 3 months or 4 months.  One day, I came back from oversea, I saw this yellow special guest just standing in my garden like welcome me back home.  It brought so much joy and happiness to me.    

That was a bad thunder storm at my area yesterday, and raining cats and dogs.  This morning I ran out to my garden to visit this yellow guy,  it still standing firmly without falling apart after a storm, still fixing the eyes upon the sun.  Sunflower, you are so beautiful, so bold, so loyal, and so bright!

I have found a poem writing by Katherine R. Lane, I like it so much because it sounds the voice from my heart.

I see you there in glory shining bright,
Following the sun and its path of light.
Standing tall above all others in the field,
You grow, conquer, and do not yield.

The little birds take great delight
In playing round you, from day to night.
With your petals of yellow and leaves of green
How very easily you are seen.

But there is more to you than first sight,
More than beauty and grander to delight.
Every beautiful aspect that appears,
Gives praise to the Father dear.

He made you a part of creation,
And you praise him in glorious celebration!
The beauty that within you is expressed,
Gives testimony to his greatness.

Sunflower, how I long to be like you!
Glorifying God in all I do.
Following the Son and His path of light,
To worship Him in His glory shining bright.

I can learn from you, my friend,
With every breath, praise to God, I might send.
With all of his creation telling the story,
Might I, with you, proclaim His glory.

First blooming flower

After 3 days, the seeds became more mature 
I plan to plant more of them in my garden, even when people pass by and see them will give them a big smile on their faces.
