I am too!I have wonderful memories of sunflowers..entre autres..taking a few hrs with my dear artist friend that moved away..to photo some about 3 yrs ago..They have the most personality of all flowers..Then spotting an enormous floor planter filled with them in a courtyard in Italy..the sunflower field where they make the oil about 20 minutes form our home..my humble ones here..the ones my friend grew too..bouquets as gifts..The bees adore them too!
I share this love . Those flowers seem very "alive" and happy !
they are beauties! :)
So gorgeous. I love sunflowers, too. They have personality!
Rita -- And don't they look charming with the lovely blue sky behind them in one of your pics. I used to grow sunflowers outside my kitchen window in Michigan -- they would peek in at me as I worked in my kitchen. And when the wind blows -- they do dance. Nice post! -- barbara
Looks like good sketching material! We have a sunflower that has grown spontaneously under the bird feeder, and I keep meaning to photograph it. Maybe tomorrow...
Those sunflowers make my heart dance and sing.
Can't wait for mine to 'wave' at me.
That's it -- next year, I'm planting some of these cheery giants. . .
I also love sunflowers. I greet you cordially.
Lovely words to accompany these beautiful sunflower photos Rita!
Thank you for your comments! They mean a lot to me!
