Sunflowers are my favorites
I love them. 

How high they grow - like a big F-you to gravity. Defying everything around them, reaching up taller and taller to the heavens. 

I love how they follow the sun throughout the day. Echoing its trace across the sky.

I love how big they are. A gentle giant of the botanic world. 

I love the thousands of little pieces they have within them. Not just one, three, or five stamens, but thousands - to ensure pollination! 

And, mostly, I love their colour. That vibrant, golden yellow that both burns and soothes simultaneously. 

To me they are complete. Wonderful. Brilliant. Exciting. Graceful. 

That's why they are my favourites :)
