FROM THE SUN
Sunflowers planted on the edge of the garden
have towered to 8-feet high.
Heavy flowers following the sun.
Bees are working full time
to pollinate thousands of seeds.
Soon, after flower heads have dried,
we harvest these "seeds of the sun"
with a bounty of preventative benefits:
o Vitamin E (for heart health,
a powerful antioxidant)
o Selenium (anti-cancer agent)
o Magnesium (bone health)
o Anti inflammatory
o Skin protection from the sun*
(*which gave us the sunflower to start with)
A magnificent summertime flower!
