I have always loved sunflowers. I have a favourite mug with Van Gogh's Sunflower painting on, I have sunflower coasters and countless other sunflower 'stuff' that makes me smile.
I often wonder why I love these flower so much. The bright yellow colour is a good start and the way they seem to nod their heads in agreement with my every idea and plan. The image of fields of sunflowers brings back memories of a cherished holiday, which in turn reminds me of family and warmth and a well earned rest.
