A lot of people will tell you, “Those aren’t sunflowers, they are HARLEY FLOWERS!”
It wasn’t until after Harley passed away that I began to feel the connection between Harley and sunflowers. Hundreds of Harley’s friends and followers were feeling the same thing … and it continues, it may never stop. I absolutely cannot pass by a sunflower and not think of precious Harley. Sometimes the flowers appear at exactly the right moment, right when I need them most, it’s not easy to explain, but it’s no coincidence. “Thank you, Harley!”
So I decided to do a little research and this is what I found: Sunflowers symbolize happiness, vitality, faith, healing, loyalty and long-life. They provide energy in the form of nourishment and vibrance.
The sunflower moves itself in the most direct position in front of the sun so it can get the maximum sun rays. Harley understood that perfectly! The sunflower’s namesake, the sun, meant everything to Harley. After living inside a dark building with no sunlight for the first 10 years of his life … so naturally, he loved the sun and it’s warmth!
