WOW... that's fantastic!

Iwent to the funeral of a girl in her early 20's about 2 years ago and everyone in the church was given several sunflower seeds to sow as they were her favourite flower. About 2 months later a sunflower grew (and flowered eventually) in the crack of the pavement just by the church! Maybe someone had dropped one, it made loads of people remember her and talk about her, amazing that they can grow in such places.

Thanks for sharing Tim.

I know, it did seem like she was looking down. Sunflowers are such a beautiful flower.
