Day 24 – yellow is one of my favourite colours and today it’s my salute to sunflowers and Ukraine….
Three years ago we planted some sunflower seeds (brought from Australia in a small packet) at school. This was the second year we had tried to plant sunflowers. The previous year’s crop failed.
And they grew….
As tall as our tallest students….
Way past the teeny tiny ones….
They just didn’t stop….!
Tall enough to play hide and seek in…
The blooms were magnificent….
Little did we know the significance they would take on this year…
Our hearts ache and we mourn for you,
Children of Ukraine,
Displaced, wounded, stricken, dying.
