Sunflowers are happy, vibrant and very tenacious flowers. Her favourite flower is really the daisy but she is not as keen with the French translation,” marguerite”, and so she chose sunflower to be her nom-de-plume, hence, Tournesol.  C’est vraiment plus joli comme nom, n’est-ce pas?*

The blossom later in the season but what is so wonderful, is seeing is blooming late summer beginning of autumn and even in mid November, she has seen the same sunflowers on her walk to work,  stand strong and proud growing from the concrete just off rue St-Denis in Montreal.

September blossoms

*It’s really a much prettier name, isn’t it?
