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?
