It’s been a beauty of a Summer so far…

…and Autumn is just a month from today, on September 22nd at 9:29 PM (CDT), so I thought, because my computer was down for so long, I’d show a few flowers from the neighborhood.

  1. AH! You’ve been missed! I love the sunflower shots. The Hibiscus shot is also a beauty. The petals look like fabric. Great color for a frock, top or Converse shoes?! B.

    • Actually, Mlle B., I haven’t worn red in years–just nothing red in the closet, not even red socks! Guess I need a shopping trip, as my hair has become so very white, red would be a nice contrast (as long as I’m full made up, that is!).

    • They are just so cheerful, smacked, and I do love their ‘earthy’ aroma…but more than that, I love sunflower seeds, and add them to my breads and muffins all the time for extra nutrition and fiber!
