A Sunny Delight

Greetings Lovlies! 

The sun has been shining here in Seattle for a record number of days now.

So, I thought it would be a perfect time to share with you 

the lovely sunflowers that adorn my neighbor's garden.




Each morning, coffee in hand, I walk out on our deck and get to enjoy this sunny delight!




I guess I've never really observed the sunflower up close and personal before.





I find them so lovely in their every stage! 




Accepting the light, they come to life against a blue sky.









The colors remind me that autumn is just around the corner.




Such amazing beauty and detail...




...towering over my 6ft stature.









Thank you Sunflower,  for brightening my day! 








Sending a little love and sunshine your way...


Becca

Beautiful photography Becca! You have a way with the camera. Sunflower's are Kansas' state flower and a field full of them is a site to behold.

I love sunflowers, and your close up photos are gorgeous (as always). How did you manage to get so close without bees being right in your face?
