This sunflower is a tribute to Tina Downey of Life is Good. She passed away on 23 August.
I first “met” her in April, she was one of the hosts of the Blogging from A to Z challenge. I only had a few exchanges with her, but that was enough for me to understand she was a special person.
In one of her last blog posts, she was worried about not being able to post regularly due to health problems. Worried she would be forgotten.
Tina, you will never be forgotten.
My thoughts are with your family.
Tina was born in Sweden, like myself. The Swedish word for sunflower is “sun-rose” (solros). Of course a completely incorrect name for a flower that is not a rose, but I think a perfect name for Tina, a sun and rose in the blogging world.
