Heaven in a Wild Flower

Sunflowers grow wild in Texas ... fields and fields of sunflowers. Cultivated sunflowers typically grow taller and larger, but there is nothing cheerier than a field of wild Texas sunflowers painting a sunny picture against a blue sky.

"To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand,
And Eternity in an hour." --William Blake
