(Not Quite) Wordless Wednesday - Sunflowers From Auvers-sur-Oise To The Midwest

Today marks the 130th anniversary of Vincent Van Gogh's death. 
On July 29, 1890 Vincent Van Gogh died in the arms
his brother, Theo. Vincent was only 37-years-old.
This is his grave in Auvers-sur-Oise in northern France.
