Today the blogging community honors Tina Downey of Life is Good. Tina, who was an instrumental part of the Blogging A to Z April Challenge, passed away on August 27th.

Because Tina loved sunflowers, the A to Z team is hosting a tribute today, Sunflowers for Tina, to fill the blog world with flowers in her honor. We were asked to buy or plant and photograph a sunflower, but as I traveled the city this past week, I noticed there are sunflowers everywhere right now, in full, beautiful bloom. They look bright, and restless. They’re blooming together, filling otherwise dull, browning spaces with color. You can’t help but be drawn to them.

I chose one, growing wild near my home, to share.

Rest in peace, Tina. We’ll miss you.
