A beautiful surprise happened on the campus of the Naugatuck Senior Center. With all of the closings, the famous garden on the grounds of the Naugatuck Senior Center was left unattended. To my surprised, come spring, I noticed green seedling sprouting everywhere in the garden. Day by day these sprouts grew into 4 foot stalks. The sunflowers that grew in our 2019 garden, that the squirrels missed during their sunflower seed snacking, well, those fallen sunflower seeds germinated and took root in this year’s garden. Yes, over 100 sunflowers are vibrantly growing strong in the garden. I take it as a good sign, that during these complicated, COVID 19 days, where we are all challenged to make changes and find ways to stay safe, healthy and active in our own ways, our determined and energized sunflowers, now, some as tall as 20 feet, are a reminder that we are not forgotten, and as last year’s seeds returned to us in 2020 to brighten our days with their glowing yellow bursts of blooms, I am certain that we will also return soon to are welcoming Naugatuck Senior Center. Stay strong, like our sunflowers! I miss you all!
