I smile every time I drive by this sunflower.
Wishing you smiles this Saturday.

Oh my gosh! That's just great, isn't it? I love sunflowers anyway, but this one is such a survivor!

I love sunflowers! I am just happy that the city isn't fining the people who own the house for "weeds" in their yard!

Lovely photo and nice no one chopped it down. Yes things will grow through cracks in pavement and sidewalks. Thanks for your visit.

I love that. The tenacity of a plant growing through a crack always amazes me.

My son love to plant sunflowers and for that reason alone, they make me smile, but they are actually gorgeous...after a daffodil they just might be my favorite.

How lovely is that? Sometimes you just have to let the wild things grow. It made me smile. Thank You!

You and the escaping sunflowers; Tombstone Annie with her Petunias! Great minds....

Makes me think that if that flower can overcome obstacles, then maybe I can too.
