Photos of Sunflowers

My two younger children fly in from northern Michigan today where they have been at camp for a month. Strangely enough, this set me to thinking about sunflowers, since the last time I was in the vicinity of their camp I photographed fields of sunflowers. I’ve searched out and resurrected those photos from northern Michigan and they are the five last ones below. In the meantime on my bike ride yesterday, I snapped a survey of sunflowers from around here in anticipation of my kids coming home, which are the rest of the photos shown on this post.

And if you want, you can wrap your head around the fact that the seed spirals on sunflowers represent fibonacci numbers and the golden mean, which I find fascinating. (Click here to check it out.) This is where God and engineering meet… I guess pretty soon I’ll need to wrap my head around homeschooling again, where interesting facts like this come out…

Anyway, enjoy. Sunflowers are exclamations of cheer wherever and whenever you see them – let alone proof of God’s amazingly intricate design.

I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.
