About our cover…It’s hard not to love sunflowers. They’re fun, they’re cheerful, and they remind us of summer vacations. I can show you the bed where I took this photo along Inwood Road in Dallas a couple of years ago, but I can’t tell you the variety name of this mid-sized plant with mid-sized flowers. That’s because I didn’t bother to knock on the door. (I wonder if that big, barking dog still lives on the other side of that fence.)
