Sunflower at night

A few weeks before my father-in-law passed away we sat down and had a nice chat. He told me that one of the things he wanted to do in his life was to plant an entire hectare of sunflowers - just for fun. He said sunflowers were his favourite flowers and that they made him feel so happy.

Last summer when I was in America, I bought a packet of sunflower seeds and this spring I planted them next to our gate. This is the first flower to open. I hope to save the seeds so I can plant more. Who knows, maybe I'll fulfill my father-in-laws dream one day and plant an entire hectare. Wouldn't that be awesome?

What a gesture. Very thoughtful of you. A nice reminder of him.

About This Blog

A photoblog... a picture a day... maybe... It all depends on whether my kids leave my battery supply alone and the internet connection, not to mention my level of motivation.

Or I can simply say:
'A picture a day, insha'allah!'
