Faded Beauty


Faded by the heat.
 
 

But beautiful still.

This little sunflower was planted by our birds from the seed we feed them.


grace surrounds us

  7. Beautiful images of the lovely sunflower Olive although she looks a little sad !! A drop of water and I'm sure that she will be revived. They are very resilient.
    By the way, I love your header picture. So atmospheric. XXXX

  10. You are right, it is still beautiful and I love the fact that the birds were responsible for its existence. I am attempting the drying technique you told me about for my hydrangeas - they have had a resurgence lately. Thanks for that info! Ann
