Sunshine in the Garden

Posted by Picasa

“I don't think there's anything on this planet that more trumpets life that the sunflower. For me that's because of the reason behind its name. Not because it looks like the sun but because it follows the sun. During the course of the day, the head tracks the journey of the sun across the sky. A satellite dish for sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter how weak, these flowers will find it. And that's such an admirable thing. And such a lesson in life."

From "The Calendar Girls"


  1. What BEAUTIFUL photos! You go, girl!

  2. Yes, they are, and they are really drawing the honeybees out! What I wish is that the honeybees would get rid of the mosquito population out there. So many more pretty things out there, but I can't stand to be out there for more than a few minutes.

    Favorite shot is that last one. Because of how it's placed I couldn't get to it to take a head-on shot, so I just held the camera up and out and shot, not knowing what I'd get.

  3. Wonderful shots that just scream happy to me.
