Smiling faces in a vase I smile whenever I see one Like puppets on a string such joy and laughter their smile doth bring I feel that any moment they will burst into a song Whenever they are here there is singing all day long I gaze at them for hours Unlike any other flowers I sometimes hear their giggles and their gentle chitter chatter Whether growing in the soil or standing tall inside a vase ~ Sunflowers ~ somehow make me feel as if I’m not alone as if I really matter When they are here at home with me those smiling faces full of love melt my heart make me smile spreading love here all the while… Written 13th July 2020 as I gaze at those smiley faces ~ I am sure one winked...

And I thought I was the only one who always sees those smiles; now I know there are two of us Ann. I feel I am in terrific company here.

Thanks Tom, they always bring a smile to my face and sunshine to my life. It has been a lovely sunny day here in Eastbourne, although the wind was getting stronger by the end of the day. Sorry to hear you had rain, but I suppose the plants and gardens do need it. Keep well my friend. With kindest thoughts Ann xx
