In Nassau county LI,NY. there are two cities, one is Long Beach and one is Glen Cove. I live in Glen Cove but it should really be called "Sunflower city." Because I notice on my early morning walks tons of sunflowers, especially in the St. Rocco area where I have my apartment. The settlers in this largely Italian neighborhood must have planted sunflower seeds here long ago. They remind me of this big sunflower plant my grandmother had in her garden when I was growing up in Westbury LI. that I used to look at it all day because I thought it was the Jack in the Beanstalk..
These are some pictures I took around my neighborhood this morning.
