Dr. Doug's Sunflower reviving elixir

I looked around the road garage Tuesday afternoon for something to put between the sunflower and the door and have there all day Wednesday.  Like I really knew what I was looking for.  Doug, the assistant road super, kindly steered me out of his bailiwick, telling me anything I put there would likely blow over and snap the stalk.  He said, in his opinion, it was up to the sunflower.


I pulled in this morning.

The IV is still dripping.

The sunflower is starting to bloom.

Doug is smiling.  He only hoped it would be alive, and here it is about to bloom.

No further bulletins until Monday.

  4. Sunflowers always remind me of my children. They used to bring them home from school and we would plant them in the garden.
