and photographing all the beauty that surrounds us
Thanks for taking a peek into my little world

Gorgeous close up shot! Beautiful texture and pattern. And with beautiful orange colour, it would be perfect for Mandarin Orange Monday too:)

Love this ... it's drying and about ready to hang up to save for the winter or let the squirrels have a hey-day... such details, the color, love it all! Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #48!

I'm not a photographer, I'm a blogger, but I really appreciate fine photography and was drawn to your picture from Weekly Top Shot. I'm from Kansas and the sunflower is our state flower! Happy Fall

I love sunflowers. I missed having them in our garden this year. I planted them in my fall garden to see what they would do. We'll see...
