Sunflower Serenade

I'm participating in Alphabe-Thursday with Jenny Matlock and our assignment this week is the letter "S".  Since Fall is officially here, I thought that I would help usher the season in with some photos of sunflowers.

The first four photos were taken at Apple Annie's in Willcox, AZ (near Tucson) 2 years ago.  As you can see, the sky was a gorgeous blue and some of the sunflowers were still standing tall and majestic among others that had already lived a sunny life!

Alive and waiting to be born!

 
Custer's last stand!

The last two photos were taken in my daughter's backyard several weeks ago.  My son-in-law planted pumpkin seeds, sunflowers and I don't-know-what in their new backyard.  The sunflowers suddenly came up and started dancing in the wind which thrilled my two grandchildren.


             Here I am.  Come look at me in all my glory.

 
            Stop by Jenny's blog today and visit other "S" participants.

Beautiful flowers.
We've had a really bad Summer in the UK, so it's great to see beautiful flowers blooming in the sun!
Enjoy them

I like that sunflowers are so big! Have to say, since someone gave me a bouquet of red sunflowers, I decided I like those even more.

My father's family is from Kansas, the Sunflower State, but I don't think they have any that rate higher than these!

Oh how lovely!

I adore Apple Annies, although we didn't go last year at all.

I remember seeing some fields of sunflowers in our travels and the color was so intense it almost hurt my eyes!

The bee capture is really special,too!

thanks for sharing it.

A+
