Random Quote of the Day (And Winter Weather, Sunflowers and Squirrels)

"It was one of those chilly and empty afternoons in early winter, when the daylight is silver rather than gold and pewter rather than silver."
- G. K. Chesterton
That describes yesterday to a T. With a high of 20 F and lots of clouds, everything was gray, silver and pewter. A good day to remember this beautiful sunflower that we had growing in the back a few months ago.

It grew all summer long, getting taller and taller. We all watched the bud grow larger and larger, checking it daily for signs of blooming. Then it finally bloomed, huge and bright, following the sun every day. And when it finally faded, it provided entertainment for us and nourishment to the squirrels.
