In the Sun with John Denver and Glenn Campbell

While deciding what to write about my first sunflower that appeared this week, I got to remembering the song by the same name. I thought it was written by John Denver, and started looking around for it on the web. I never found it, but dug up this video of John, looking much as he did when we all had a crush on him in the 70's, singing "Sunshine on my Shoulders." Note: If there is music playing on my site when you're reading this, just go to the green box in the sidebar and pause the music first.


Can you dig those groovy luminescent floor tiles??! As if that's not enough to give you cavities, I found this slideshow to the long-lost song, and discovered that it was written by Neil Diamond and sung by Glen Campbell. Before watching, you might want to drill a hole in your computer and let some of the sap out. (It is REALLY sweeeeet). It probably won't help to tell you that I once did a clog dancing routine to this song.

Love the sunflower. For the past few years, either a rabbit or squirrel has gotten to our sunflower seedlings before they stood a chance :( Happy to enjoy yours!

I am a big John Denver fan but can't remember ever hearing the Sunflower song. Thanks for sharing his beautiful voice again. Sappy/Sweet is good! And I would have loved to see that clog dance. I come from a land where clog dancing was real popular at the annual Apple Pie Fayre in my small village back in England. Great blog.
