The other week I posted a few rather poor pictures of our sunflowers just for fun because the crows were using them like dinner plates. It was sweet. Nothing note-worthy.
So what makes me tell you all about it again?
It's the follow comment from a woman, MJ. She wrote:
I love driving by your sunflowers, I smile every time, u let me pick some once for my home....thank u
'Very sweet' I think and thank her for commenting and enjoying my gardens. She continues...
I remember that day fondly
Chris, because of that day I keep fresh flowers in my house every single weekend now....... Nothing like it
WOW! how long has this been going on?
I truly have no recollection of this event. In fact, it's a rare year that we have sunflowers! I plant the seeds to give us 'quick' flowers on those years that the cannas have called it quits due to a previous harsh winter. The last time prior to this year? I'm thinking at least five years ago.
Just goes to show you that a seemingly innocuous act on your part, can make a major impact on another. Simply by being yourself others take note and you can and do have a lasting impression on them - for better or worse.
You never know...
