Bye, Bye Sunflowers...

you will be missed!!
 
 
 
These images are from my last photo session with a sunflower on
August 31, 2013.
 
I find these flowers to be extraordinary.
The pattern detail in the center,
could only be created by Mother Nature!
And not only are these flowers beautiful
but they are an important food source for our feathered friends!!
 
Do you have a favorite flower?
I can often be heard calling any number of flowers my favorite...
truth be told, I could never pick a favorite!!

  1. Your photos are beautiful, the clarity are so inspiring I could just stare at them and still see more details each time I look. The bee looks like he is posing for his portrait! I always look forward to your posts, they are just beautiful to look at and a great way to start my day! Thank you for sharing!

    like you said in the post - it is too hard to pick a fav. because that list there does not even covered my total list of favorite flowers. ( :

    Hard for me to pick a fav flower too , I love so many. I will tell you a few that splash the most color here on the farm ~ morning glories, zinnia, cosmos, ,and daisies yet we have great luck with so many types of flowers here.

  11. Picking only one favourite flower is like asking me to pick only one favourite piece of chocolate.Sunflowers are very pretty,which these pictures prove so well.

  20. I love sunnies, and I'm sad when they leave. So I cheat and keep some very real-looking silk ones in the house displays. There's just something about those huge smiling faces that brightens my day. Your photos are gorgeous.

  28. Sun flowers are so beautiful. We had planned on planting some this year; but it didn't happen. I loved these pictures and thought. I love all flowers but probably my favorite is roses. I love the smell and they bring back memories of earlier times with my hubby.
    Blessings!
