For this tribute, participants were asked to buy or plant a sunflower in her name and post a picture of it today.You can even purchase plastic sunflowers! It's the thought that truly counts, and plastic sunflowers will last forever.
There's still time to sign up. Even if you can't get to the store to buy a sunflower, you can still share a picture of one. Even if you didn't know Tina personally, you can still contribute to this beautiful tribute.
|I had to go the fake flower route. |
The artwork under the flowers actually has a sunflower on it.
Can you see the long petals?
“I don’t think there’s anything on this planet that more triumphs life than the sunflower. For me, that’s because of the reason behind its name. Not because it looks like the sun, but because it follows the sun. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky; a satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that’s such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life.” –Helen Mirren
