the highly low, lowly high sunflower

They chatter.

And lend themselves to the whims of all ilk of artist.

After the smiley face they are the most overused icon for cheerfulness the world has ever seen. And when they evidence any hint of imperfection or decay they play magnificently to the poignancy card Joe SixPack holds near to his heart. They've nodded their way in and have no intentions of leaving our Hallmark Card dramas.
As you can imagine, I would not be without them.

Your sunflower display is quite enchanting. By the way, Micki absolutely loves the Matsumota asters you sent us...I like them too. The world would surely be a very drab place without flowers.:)
