Sunday Photo - Sunflower


On our way up to Flagstaff last week, we pulled off the interstate so I could take some pictures of an older homestead and some horses. This wild sunflower was growing in the ditch alongside the country road.

Linking up with Weekly Top Shot, Straight Out Of the Camera SundayYour Sunday Best and Floral Friday Fotos.

May be a roadside flower, but its color is brilliant and the soft shadows on its petals make it even better. Great capture! Thanks for sharing it with us!

Don't you love seeing happy flowers blooming in places such as ditches? One year, there were sunflowers blooming as individuals alongside a nearby rural highway; I think there must have been sunflower seeds in the new gravel. ;-)

Absolutely beautiful!
Candy, I use 100% cotton yarn for my dishcloths. They shrink if they are washed in hot or warm water, but are pretty sturdy. I dry mine on the line, and they will get stiff like towels, when dried outside.

I'm really enjoying all the sunflowers around the blogs right now. Mine aren't doing so well, so I'm glad you shared this one.

I stopped along a side road up there once and collected a bunch of their seeds. I brought them home and spread them out in the yard. The following year I was rewarded with my own forest of sunflowers!
