Sunflower Surprise!

Friends sent us two walnut trees - actually walnut twigs - to plant in memory of Jim three years ago. Only one of the walnut twigs made it; and, now it looks very much like a tree. To my surprise a single sweet sunflower (a flower I like to draw, a flower I associate with Jim) took root this summer at the base of the walnut tree, grew and bloomed, poking its way right out the middle of the tree. When it was discovered I promptly kissed its sweet little face as if it were Jim saying, "Hi!, it's me, Mom!" Thank you, Jim....I love you and miss you so much. Love, MOM
