May Flowers: Sun Thirst

We celebrate Day Six of our flowery event with festive Sunflowers by artist Vaida PetreikienÄ— who comes to us from Lithuania.

May Flowers: Sun Thirst

“Bring me then the plant that points to those bright Lucidites
swirling up from the earth,
And life itself exhaling that central breath!
Bring me the sunflower crazed with the love of light”

~ Eugenio Montale

In italian mimosa, in spanish mimosa.
Tranlates into english as sensitive
In Argentina, feminine mimosa, masculine mimoso, meaning a person
wishing to be cuddle."Mimosa Pudica" acacia from America reacts to touch as a defense against predators.
