I would love to have an entire patch of sunflowers. The huge kind. The ones that are feet taller than I am and the blooms are as big as my head. One day I will, if the squirrels don't get to them. Could you just imagine getting lost in a field of sunflowers and looking up and seeing nothing but large yellow blooms? Sounds amazing, minus the bugs…
