Thoughts to Brighten Your Day


More About Sunflowers

Helen Keller

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows. It’s what the sunflowers do.


While sunflowers come in a range of warm colors, from golden to orange, red, and purple, they are most known for their vibrant yellow color. As the color yellow represents joy, happiness, and laughter, these qualities are what the sunflower embodies.
