Sun in the Sky

My own twist on a sunny sky. I started this sunflower plant from a tiny seed and now it towers over me. The flower just bloomed yesterday. This is its first morning stretch towards the rising sun in the east.

Neat Idea..if the Sun does not come out on it's own....let a Sunflower take it's place.
