Follow the SUN flowers

Last night I went out to check to see if the sunflowers were any closer to blooming. 

They were facing the west and looking oh so lovely, as the sun was saying her nightly “rest wells.” 

This morning, and this is no joke, all of those same plants are literally facing the other direction! 

East. Towards the sun. 

I ran for my camera. 

I checked the Cosmos and Zinnias. They look the same as always, heads held high, in no particular direction. 

How glorious! I’ve never seen such a thing as a “look” change from sunset to sunrise. That Mother Nature sure has some tricks up her sleeve. 

Every time I think about it, I smile. In fact, I think I’ll change the name of our lovely garden guests to: Follow the SUN Flowers.
