Sunflowers in January - Whiteman Lane, Indian Valley

Please check out today's post at The Days of Wine & Roses; it's the sixth & final poem in the sequence Sonnets for Lily Yukon, which I wrote in the early 90s.


  1. I love the snow on bluesky days. The skeletons of sunflowers are a perfect compliment to the shining snow.

  2. This would make a fantastic painting! Absolutely stunning, John!

  3. Hi Karen & Kat: Thanks! It was a glorious day--we've had some nice weather here toward the end of January.

  4. Something about the sky reminded me of what someone said about exiles always looking at the sky because it was the same the world over and it reminded them of home.

    Great photo - enjoyed Lily Yukon Sonnet, too.

  5. Oh, that's lovely! :)

    A great blue/snow shot.

  6. Hi Ginger: Glad you liked it! Those sunflowers gave me the idea for the Sunflowers in January I posted a few days before I posted the photo.
