Album Notes
Welcome to the music and inner world of "Bud" the Sunflower.

Love of nature, and a passion for music compelled Kiki to create a way for her sunflower plant to control the sounds of a world-class Bechstein piano. The result is a quirky solo piano sonata played by a sunflower.

Bud is a volunteer sunflower that grew out of a hole in the cinder block wall of the Webb's garden, in northern Minnesota. Bud started life as a black oil sunflower seed in a blue bird feeder outside the kitchen window. Whether a bird or chipmunk carried the seed from the feeder to the garden wall is unknown. The perpetrator is still on the run.

Bud flourished under adverse conditions and grew to be a handsome, moderately-sized sunflower. Bud was a late bloomer, staying closed up as a bud much longer than the many other sunflowers in the yard, hence the name "Bud." On August 25, 2015, the day he played this music you are hearing, Bud finally bloomed.

Valara's Garden is a musical project of Sunblossom Records. Through the Valara's Garden Project, Kiki hopes to record as many of her garden plants as possible before the first freeze.
