I posted this idea on Instagram the other day. I unofficially declare the sunflower to be the official flower of Long Beach. Since Sandy I’ve been noticing more and more sunflowers around town. Right? Or am I going crazy? I see these flowers everywhere! We stroll through giant bunches towering over our sidewalks. We buy them as bouquets at the Farmer’s Market. Even public property like the median on Long Beach Blvd is brighten by their giant faces. I am actually kicking myself for not planting any myself, but I will next year. And so should you. I say unofficial flower, but I would love for this to become official! What do you folks think?
