Small Talk

A sunflower blooms at Robert J. Moody Demonstration Garden, Yuma, Arizona.

April afternoon—
why are we making small talk
while sunflowers bloom?

  13. Beverly Crawford

    What a happy thought!

  14. No time for small talk when the flowers are in bloom! Run through the meadows (stay on the paths) and take in the scents! Alternately, no time for small talk in April because there’s too much work to do in the garden.

  15. Great question … blooming sunflowers are meant for picnics of fruit, bread, cheeses and wine, on blankets spread out next to gurgling brooks. No words necessary. Cheers.

  16. Exactly move to the level of sunflowers and bloom

  17. Theres nothing better than to appreciate the coming of spring…especially if you are a gardener!

  18. This made me smile! (And agree.)
