is there any flower that evokes the bright cheeriness of a summer sun better than the sunflower? with its tall height and beaming blooms (some breeds grow significantly taller than a human!), a field of sunflowers is hard to miss and harder to scowl at. celebrate the height of summer with these wheels of cheer in your own garden or as part of a happy bouquet, and then bring that cheer through the whole year by knitting yourself a pi shawl that evokes everything from the dark centre of seeds to the layers of petals surrounding them.
