Sunflower and Coconut

When we were in Grand Cayman this past summer on our anniversary DH went out to buy me a bouquet of flowers to put in a vase on the condo dining room table.  He happened to get sunflowers because he knows I’m very fond of them.  It was very sweet – and the bottle of champagne that came with them didn’t hurt either!  One day towards the end of our stay I took one of the sunflowers outside to take pictures of it in unusual surroundings for such a flower.  One of those shots was this one taken on a little table on the beach with a juvenile coconut that had fallen from a tree the previous night during a rainstorm.  The two of them took to each other and became friends.  On the day we left, I walked down the beach to stand in the ocean where I tossed them both in bidding them farewell.
