Lonely beauty

Lonely beauty

I found this scene really rather sad. This magnificent sunflower all alone surrounded by concrete, bits of driftwood and rubbish. Perhaps the saddest thing is, it is so beautiful but there’s no one to admire it. So, for the sake of the sunflower, here’s a chance for everyone to admire it in all its glory before its beauty fades and is gone for good, and we are left once more with the concrete and rubbish.

    Thanks for sharing your photo! Now all your many followers can appreciate the effort this plant made to bloom despite it’s unfavourable location.

    It could be story about overcoming mounting odds. Triumph in the face of adversity. Nature overcomes, where it was not meant to be. Beautiful nonetheless. Thanks for sharing!

    At the very least, you found it and admired it…and it brought you joy even if only for a short time!

    Nice shot! I’m sure the birds will enjoy it. 🙂

    Crikey I’m welling up, it is poignant.

    …but not sad now, because lots of us have seen it.

    But hey, you admired it and have now shared it with the rest of the world. Maybe it’s life has not been in vain.

    One more adoring fan, here. Sunflowers are my all-time favourite flower. Rich in symbolism. I hope you go back today and get more photos; they are a worthy subject, for sure. And I love the contrast/composition of this photo.

    And the seeds not eaten by migrating birds will fall, germinate and continue to flourish in the sundrenched corner. Lovely posts. Thank you for liking my Repurposed Poems.
