Mickie, these cheerful images are so very bright and beautiful! I could not ask for a more perfect way to start of my day then viewing such loveliness. Your stunning images are like a breath of fresh air.

Also, a very gracious thank you for leaving such kind remarks on my blog posts. Your warm spirit and kind heart are traits that are seen less and less these days. You are a beautiiful soul!

Mickie...Your sunflowers are so bright and cheery. It has been a dreary day here so their smiles were so nice to see. I love the contrast of the yellow and green. Hope you have a nice week without too much heat. Genie
PS..my hibiscus had 3 new blooms this morning. exciting :-)

Lovely photos, Mickie. The fatigue of walking on a long hot dusty road would be eased by the bright, yellow smiling faces of the sunflowers.

Nice to see them in various stages of bloom in the first shot. The second shot works really well with the colour contrast.
