As a kid growing up in NYC my mother grew some tremendous sunflowers in the yard. I used to marvel at their beauty and would often run though the garden surrounded by towering sunflowers. I remember those days as the care free days of my youth. My relationship with sunflowers soon soured when one day running through the garden I realized that sunflowers are attractive to bees as well as humans.
Too many years have gone by allowing the sight of sunflowers to generate feelings of anxiety , pain and a buzzing in my ear. I set out to make new fond memories of this classic summer flower as part of our Starbright’s flowers in NYC photo shoot. By arranging to have sunflowers displayed alongside some of my favorite New York City’s famous and not so famous landmarks I have been able to silence the buzzing of those bees.

Hope you are staying cool and are surrounded by bee-less sunflowers!
