Oh heavens Koralee, that doesn't work for people here in Phoenix. We have to keep our face out of the sun. We embrace the shade! Those sunflowers are UNBELIEVABLE. I will think of them all day.

Those sunflowers are AMAZING!

Good Morning Koralee Sweetie...
Everton is Terrace is right. We have to keep our face out of the sun here in Phoenix. It will burn in 10 minutes out here.

I too have to admit I embrace the shade.

I love the sunflowers though. I love seeing the fields of them that they have started planting after wheat harvest in Oklahoma where my family lives. They are so beautiful. I took a picture of a field solid. I love watching them move with the sun, aren't they amazing.

A beautiful post today sweetie. Such a beautiful post. I love reading you writes. They are awesome. Thanks for sharing sweet friend.

Have a beautiful Tuesday. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

A few years ago I was so excited when I found out that sunflowers "follow the sun!" What a cheerful way to stay bright! so at that time I redecorated my whole kitchen with sunflower stuff! Imagine, I came back to Canada for a break, and everyone was in love with sunflowers! but your photo takes the prize, what an amazing flower!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I'm going to write this down and read it during the day....to keep myself focused on the positive! Thanks for your inspiration! ♥

Tina Eudora said...

I love Sunflowers too Koralee!
They just come up (most of mine from dropped birdseed) no fuss, no muss, they just grow and spread their glory...what more can a gardener ask for? Have a super day!

Marydon said...

Most of the shadows of this life are caused by our standing in our own sunshine. (I love this quote, runs along with your write today)

G'morn, Koralee ~
I love the 'ladies' standing facing the sun so erect & as their heads become full they bow before Him.

Great pics.
Have a beautiful summer day ~
TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

I love sunflowers, we actually had a little one grow out of nowhere this year. We assume a little bird must have dropped a seed sometime this winter. The message is wonderful, as always!

Hooray for positive thinking. These sunflowers are amazing! My seeds did not even pop this time. Last year we played this fun game of who could grow to biggest sunflower. I did not win the game but it sure was fun!
I did keep my face to the sun today, my shoulders even a bit too much. We tobogganed and tobogganed and tobogganed and laughed and laughed and laughed!
EnJOY your Tuesday sweet Koralee, I'm off to grab a nice cup of evening tea + some chocolate. xxxxxx

They teach me so much about living my life .
I'm a single mom since 1992 . Mother of four .
Two boys and two girls . It wasn't always easy being a working mom buth thanks to my children it was such an amazing journey . And now they show me how wonderful life is and we share so many sweet memories . When they were little I was the one treating on icecream ...now it's the other way around . That makes me the richest mom on earth ....
