The fields around Flagstaff are gorgeous during the late summer months as the sunflowers burst into bloom. The bright yellow blossoms provide a brilliant contrast to the darker colors of the mountains and forests. But, alas, as the nights are getting cooler, the sunflowers are fading and will soon be gone. . . until they burst forth once more next year.
The sunflower is one of my favorites. It’s a plant that appears on land that has been disturbed which is why we frequently see them along roadways, in fields, and in the yards of subdivision houses that haven’t been landscaped.
It’s a reminder that that beauty can be found anywhere.
The wild sunflower is native to North America but commercialization of the plant took place in Russia. It was only recently that the sunflower plant returned to North America to become a cultivated crop. But it was the American Indian who first domesticated the plant into a single headed plant.
I don’t like to see its blooming cycle end as to me it represents smiles, happiness, and survival.
So at Creative Gifts To Go, we offer sunflower decorated gifts year-round.
