Lone sunflower

This is our one sunflower of the year. I planted several large and small varieties and they were all doing fairly well. But we’ve had some terribly strong winds and rains over the past several months. Really strange weather this year. And one by one, the heavy rains would take down another soldier. Even this one, as pretty as it is, was found lying on the ground. But I cut it off the broken stalk and placed it in a vase and it has been holding strong. It’s starting to fade now but at least I was able to save it for a few days to live out its purpose and shine.
