the spice of life

There is an abiding beauty which may be appreciated by those who will see things as they are and who will ask for no reward except to see.

great sunflowers, especially the drooping ones, heavy with seeds.

Love these photos Kimy! Sunflowers are my favorite flowers. My wife took a wonderful photo of one in Oregon, with a bumble bee on it. It's now her Windows background.

How's it going my sweet friend? Happy weekend! Hugs.

thanks ;) jane's sunflowers were amazing! i only posted half of the different ones. unfortunately wed when I was there it was a hot and humid day and even though it was early evening I wasn't happy with the light...oh well, but the closeups worked.

jude- I thought of you and your amazing quilted sunflowers.

dan - perhaps your wife will permit you to post her pic! i'm sure you can come up with one of your hilarious tales

mm - glad the quote was just what you needed! anytime!

pj - that top one is so unique!

Beautiful pictures!
I love sunflowers! They remind me of hot-hot summer days in Tuscany
and I have to admire a flower that grows taller than me...
