This is a picture of a Giant Russian sunflower which I planted in our garden. It is huge the plant is larger than myself 175cm + and the flower is much larger than a dinner plate. Beautiful. It greets me every morning with its friends.
It amazes me that 200 years ago, to get a glimpse of this flower, we had to wait a season for it to bloom. There were no color photos to reveal its glory. No google to dial up an instant image. Sure we had paintings and these did gave us a glimpse. But the real thing....
Ultimately we humans had to wait a season, to have patience to see this type of magnificance.
It makes me wonder::
- what have we lost to the technology of today?
-how much are the seasons a revalation of God?
