Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #139 Sunflowers

"He is happiest who hath power to gather wisdom from a flower."

-Mary Howitt

Of all the flowers I have planted in my garden, I think I enjoy the SUNFLOWERS the most! So colorful. The seeds are delicious, and dried SUNFLOWERS are wonderful for decorating a festive summer/autumn table! I like everything about SUNFLOWERS, most of all, I find it intriging that the turn their faces toward the east as the day moves on! There is something magical about that! Vincent Van Gogh found them inspiring, I hope you do to, because this week is all about SUNFLOWERS!

Extra Credit: Choose a Van Gogh SUNFLOWER painting and do a photographic recreation!
