Chapter 5, Page 29, Book 16

Grab your coat, and get your hat
Leave your worry on the doorstep
Just direct your feet
To the sunny side of the street.

The flower that follows the sun does so even on cloudy days

Robert Leighton

Did you ever notice how flowers follow the motion of the sun, bending to find the light they need for growth.  As the sun continues its journey throughout the day, the flower follows the sun’s movement.  At the end of the day, the flower faces west as it says goodbye to the sun as it sets.

I think sunflowers are so pretty. I love their yellow and gold tones in their coloring, but they also stand so tall and majestic looking too.The Sunflower has recently been adopted as a symbol of happiness, strength, a love of the sun and sunlight and ... it is said to always turn its face to the sun

So always look for the silver lining
And try to find the sunny side of life

P. G. Wodehouse 

Live like a flower and embrace the sunny side of life!

Sunflowers not only follow the sun but when you look at them, they resemble the sun too.  Just like flowers need light, people need happy thoughts and moments to grow. The more you generate inner sunshine and spread happiness, the more joyful you will feel as well.

Look at the sunny side of everything.
Have a Good Day!

Life is Sweet on the Sunny Side of the Street

I like how the sunflower has been adopted as a symbol of happiness. One can't help but smile when one sees a sunflower growing :)

Amen to Betty! We were once traveling in Colorado and saw a field of sunflowers, it looked like hundreds of acres, all facing the same direction. A very impressive sight.

I tend to lean toward the sun too.

We had a clear sunny day today and I really enjoyed being out of doors. I always enjoy sunflowers.


Been a difficult week here. So I will "look for the silver lining
And try to find the sunny side of life."
