We picked up this sunflower along with several others at the farmer's market today. Out of all the beautiful perky stems, my 3 year old son chose this one. The lady working at the stand gave it to him for free because it was fading fast. He walked so proudly with his droopy flower for the rest of the morning. I decided to paint it quickly before it was too far gone. He looks to me like he is investigating those perky little polka dots.
