~Sunflower Days~


The sunflower fields all over Ohio are magnificent this time of year. The birds are busy feasting on the nutritious seeds, filling up for their trip south, or nourishing their little bodies for the cold winter that will inevitably descend upon the Midwest.

The above photograph was taken by Meryl, My Bit of Earth , who was gracious enough to allow me to use it here on my blog. Thank you, Meryl! They're simply breathtaking!
I've created several Sunflower pieces, and Meryl gets first pick before I list them in my Etsy shop!! They were such beautiful photos to work with, that I had a difficult time deciding what to make first! I think you'll agree that the pieces are just fabulous!


The sun is just coming up behind RoseCreekCottage, and I'm heading out to a walk in the woods with my cup of coffee before heading to the studio to work on angels. Whatever corner of the world you're in, I wish you a day filled with sunflowers!

Coming from a section of the country where sunflowers are rarely seen, I've always been amazed by them. They're so damn big.

I grew sunflowers of all sizes this year---a regular forest's worth---but the photos here on your blog are purt-near purtier than the real thing! It's such a treat to enter your world through your blog entries and your art. Thanks for sharing so many wonderful things every day in so many ways with your friends, Carol!

Thanks, Kathi! I promised myself I'd plant sunflowers in the yard next summer. And zinnias. Lots of them!

Thank you, Dee! And you're welcome. The forums have been so helpful to me that I'm glad I can give back!

It was really inspirational. I'm asking for a new camera for Christmas. (are you listening, Santa?)
