I proudly and happily live in the sunflower state. While the bluebonnet will always be a favorite with the Texas born and raised mama, the sunflower has always been a favorite of mine. I clearly remember driving up for my first semester at KU with my family and close friend being enthralled by the sunflower highway signs. I even remember Joie telling me that any state that put sunflowers on their road signs had to be a good place. Boy, was she ever right!
I love the yearly bloom, and I was happy to share a bit of it’s glory with the boys recently.
