Usually I make small bouquets of flowers from the garden, or put several small buds in separate vases. But this time the only thing I could find in the garden was a sunflower. A single sunflower wouldn't do, so I ventured further into the jungle and found some hollyhocks, cosmos, and marigolds that would do.

And I put together my first two-foot-high bouquet. Everyone liked the change; Tiger Lily reaches up to stroke the big sunflower several times per day.
