I love sunflowers! And they are in full bloom here in Northern New Mexico right now.
The little native sunflowers line the streets, roads and highways all over the Santa Fe area, both in town and out in the country.
Here in Eldorado, the sunflowers have been a blaze of golden color along our roads.
At early dawn, like soldiers in their places,
Rank upon rank the golden sunflowers stand;
Gazing toward the east with eager faces,
Waiting, until their god shall touch the land
To life and glory, longingly they wait,
Those voiceless watchers at the morning's gate.
