I love sunflowers

When they are bright, and young and oh-so-yellow.

When they stand tall against the blue sky.

When they bow gently, humbly with the wind.


I LOVE SUNFLOWERS!
Most especially when they welcome their friends, the honey bees!

With or without perfect petals.

When yellow and blue meet green and black...and a little bit of brown.

As the soft petals begin to twist and curl in.

When yellow gives way to fall's orange gold.


I love sunflowers.
From stem to leaf to bud to flower.
As they bloom and as they fade away.
They never, ever fail to bring a smile to my face!

  1. Lovely sunflower shots--all of them! I especially like the one with the honeybee. It's sad to see the flowers day as autumn comes and winter nears, but they are beautiful and useful even in death!

  3. I love them, too! Especially at this transition from summer to autumn. The represent summer at its fullest and just when that fullness starts to give way to that sense of the earth giving way to slumber.
