Today is the day when the blogosphere is remembering Tina Downey, who sadly passed away recently well before her time. The folks from the A to Z Challenge are putting on this special blog hop in Tina's honour.
"Tina loved her sunflowers, and we want to splash the blogging world with sunflowers that day and honor a truly amazing woman who was friend and family to so many."
I'm sad that I didn't know Tina well, though I did visit her blog, and those three words "Life Is Good" definitely stuck in my mind. From what I have heard about Tina, those words really summed up how she approached life. Even in the hardest of times, her spirit and love of life shone through ... like fierce sunbeams falling on gorgeous yellow flowers.
Unfortunately where I live, it's not common to see sunflowers growing on the side of the road, or in fields, or anywhere. I do, however, have some pictures to share, from when my mum had some beautiful big flowers in a vase...
Rest in peace, Tina.
