A LOVELY STORY… A husband plants 4 miles of sunflowers in tribute to his deceased wife: Babbette’s seeds of hope.






I found this story (below)… it involves no animals.  But, I thought it was so sweet and moving, I wanted to pass it along.

Babbette’s Seeds of Hope.

The story… a husband worked it out with several neighbors so he could plant 4 miles of sunflower seeds along a highway – in tribute to his wife who passed from cancer.  His goal is to sell the seeds and donate a percentage for cancer research.

Wow.  Here is the website.

Here is the FB page.  It is filled with beautiful photos of the sunflowers and of Babbette and her family…

I found this photo on the 'Babbette's Seeds of Hope" FB page. The caption read: This picture of Babbette was taken August 22, 2014, 11 weeks before she lost her fight with multiple myeloma. We love and miss you Mom!"
