Sunflowers and Ginger
It seems that I have done this theme 3 years in a row, but I just can’t help it. Every year, these strange stalks my son planted suddenly blossom into the most cheerful, bright yellow blossoms. It makes me smile every time I see them, especially since they always seem to bring some cooler weather with them.
And every year at about the same time, the ginger flowers as well. These odd-looking flowers are full of a spicy-smelling liquid that you can see just by squeezing the blooms a little. This type of ginger is well-suited to Gainesville, since it loves swampy land and hot weather.
