This summer I’m toying with the idea of planting sunflowers in our yard. Just where in our yard I have no clue as technically we only have the one unsuitable flower bed.
As I look at this sunflower that was growing randomly in a field, it makes me wonder if I should simply sprinkle sunflower seeds across the backyard and let nature take care of the rest!
Rather then adding to the greys outside, for Monday’s this month I thought I would go with some colorful macros to brighten things up!
These were just some of the many beautiful blossoms that were adorning the apricot trees at our kasbah in southern Morocco. Delicious jams made with the previous seasons apricots were enjoyed with our breakfast each morning.
Whilst we were out and about over the summer, we’d stopped for some road-works out on the highway when I noticed these glorious blooms beside us.
Was it accidental or had someone taken the time to arrange a little-something special for us all as we waited? Whatever the reason, on that sunny summer afternoon they were simply beautiful to see.
It seems almost wrong to “dirty up” a beautiful bright pink gerbera but gosh darn it, a fresh gerbera is just too hard to resist sometimes!
If what is old is new again, why can’t what is new be old?
