In the budding stage, sunflowers turn their faces toward the east at sunrise and follow the sun to the west through the course of the day. Mysteriously, they return to face eastward at night eagerly anticipating the sunrise again. Once in full bloom, the flower does not move with the sun anymore.
The desire to learn keeps one's state of mind in the budding stage. I had the privilege to work with the Bowers Museum to raise funds for United Way with my sunflower print. It is one of my favorite flowers.
