plant people


"I watched my sunflowers grow in the sunny patch. They're plant people. Any minute they could rip their own stalks from the ground, hop on over, and sit with you for tea at a table under a willow tree...
"...And now, I got it. I got why sunflowers are so...magical. It's because they are plant miracles. Think about them. Flowers with a face that make food. Maybe they're here to remind us to see them. Really see them. To take the time and stare at a sunflower. And be happy that you're alive, and well enough, to do so."
-Cathy Lamb, Such a Pretty Face
