When the severe hailstorm hit us a few weeks ago most of our garden was decimated except for a couple of vines, a few tomatoes and a few sunflowers which grew on their own from our birdseed. It's quite amazing, really, how resilient some plants are and especially these sunflowers which basically came of their own accord. So, of course I had to paint one of the sunflowers to honour this vigilance. I'm so grateful for this season and for these simple little pleasures.
