Sunflowers

Sunflowers just make me happy. I love the look, I love the color. It made me really happy when I finally got Wade to stop mowing down the ones that were trying to grow under the bird feeder. He's even liking them and said that next year he'll know not to mow them over and maybe we'll have even bigger ones.



Just a little playing I did with a close up of one of them.

  1. I would LOVE to have my own little patch like yours! And the edit...I would have thought that editing like this would just dim the sunny beauty, but far from it. It looks so beautifully elegant.

    Seriously, this is so pretty, I may want to use it on one of my cards! I really have to learn how to make my pictures gorgeous like you do!

  14. I too love sunflowers and they will get mighty tall if you let them. You'll enjoy them next year I'm sure.

    I got the package yesterday and those acorns are even cuter in person than in your photographs. Thanks for all the extra goodies too. My house smells wonderful.

    Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. ☺
