Eagle of flowers! I see thee stand,
And on the sun’s noon-glory gaze;
With eye like his, thy lids expand,
And fringe their disk with golden rays:
Though fix’d on earth, in darkness rooted there,
Light is thy element, thy dwelling air,
Thy prospect heaven.
– James Montgomery, The Sunflower
Peggy and Frank Funk have a splendid garden of sunflowers this year and they shared their bounty with the members of Haven United Methodist Church for Sunday Services. Their beautiful bouquet of sunflowers as well as Peggy’s painted rendition graced our altar to the delight of everyone present. Peggy is a gifted artist and her painting was spectacular. The combination was inspiring and brightened up our church.
Thank-you Peggy and Frank for sharing!
