Sunflower Quotes to Inspire and Brighten Your Day
During difficult days, sometimes we just need to stand tall and press our face to the sun – like the stately sunflower. Seeing a field of giant yellow flowers can't help but make us smile. Poets and writers have penned odes to this grand flower for decades. English poet, William Blake, wrote about them in "Ah! Sun-flower" in 1794! Sunflowers are at their peak in July, August, and September and are perfect for summer and fall flower arrangements. For a big (no pun intended) impact in your garden, plant sunflowers for some happy inspiration every day. They come in other colors, too, and according to our own Grumpy Gardener, they are the easiest flower to plant. Maybe I'll even grow one to rival the 30 ft. Guinness World Record holder grown by Hans-PeterSchiffer in 2014.

In the meantime, here are some inspirational and cute sunflower quotes to enjoy.
