What's Blooming Wednesday

Loads of sunflowers blooming everywhere around me!




"Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow.
It's what sunflowers do."
- Helen Keller


Sneezeweed - pretty, isn't it?


Red Admiral butterfly in the garden this morning.


Hummingbird moth in the garden last week!


Big bumble on a "green envy" zinnia.


All these beautiful sunflowers inspired my new Painted Pony, "Sunny".

I haven't seen my admirals in weeks now. :( It's more of monarch season now around here. I kinda miss those wacky guys. They were having a field day teasing the kitties.

Great photo's again Jen!! Love those ponies though!

I played along this week as it's too hot to ride (112 F today)

Lovely lovely garden photos! Love the sunflowers and all the winged visitors. This painted pony is so lovely - the combination of the vivid sunflowers and light background works so wonderfully together. :) Theresa
