Shades of yellowPosted: August 28, 2010 Filed under: Adventures in art, garden, home, NaBloPoMo, nature, Photography, Spirit, Summer | Tags: Green, laundry, Sunflower 10 Comments
With some green thrown in to go with the NaBloPo theme, some blue from the skies (and clothes pins), and whatever other color happens to crop up.
These bright yellows go well with the bright late-August days we’ve been having. I am appreciating them very much now and imagine I will appreciate them again while looking at them during the grays of winter.
We have a lot of tiger swallowtails hanging around the zinnias lately. I still haven’t seen any monarchs this year. I wonder what’s up with that?
The sunflowers are blooming nicely. The biggest one has already gone to seed and the birds have obviously been dining on it.
I like the way the sunflowers appear to have different personalities and attitudes. This one seems to be standing tall and proud with its hair (petals) slicked back.
