Ukraine Sunflowers

Ukraine & Sunflowers

I love that Ukraine’s national flower is the sunflower. Sunflowers are so incurably optimistic, which is a characteristic I can totally relate to on a personal level. Even when there are days without water, without sunshine, without much hope, sunflowers abide, stoically, patiently, surviving on the faith that a better tomorrow might actually arrive tomorrow. I hope this applies to the people of Ukraine. That they don’t give up. That they never give up. Some of these sunflowers were shot by a field in van Gogh’s Arles and some I grew in the garden in Vejbystrand last summer. I hope one day to be able to add a few Ukrainian sunflowers to my collection. #StandWithUkraine
