My back window faces a national forest (USA, Arizona) that was once lush with Ponderosa Pines until the Rodeo-Chediski fire of 2002 transformed it into a prairie…a beautiful prairie. This summer, that landscape is a blanket of small yellow sunflowers. Here’s my question. The flowers are always facing me.(east) (It’s a little unnerving – as though they’re an audience waiting for me to step out on my porch and entertain them!) Seriously though, they are not sun tracking – perhaps they did earlier in the summer; but, now their faces droop perenially to the east. Do you know why?
