2nd annual Sunflower challenge | Photo courtesy Hope Ward

Sept. 26, 2018 – Washington Co., WI – It’s that time of year when the sunflowers are in full glory.

In 2017 WashingtonCountyInsider.com issued a challenge to neighbors to show us your sunflower.

The Ward family put a little Wallenda into their photo …. and with junior up top he still wasn’t tall enough to reach the head of the sunflower.

Mr. climbed atop a pair of sawhorses and still wasn’t tall enough – looks like a 10 footer. Can anybody do better?

Ah! Sunflower

William Blake1757 – 1827

Ah! sunflower, weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the sun,
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveller’s journey is done;

Where the youth pined away with desire,
And the pale virgin shrouded in snow,
Arise from their graves and aspire;
Where my sunflower wishes to go.
