Sunflowers are some of my favorite summer visitors!
Seriously, it’s just about impossible to see one and not smile.
My Goldfinches, who like to pick the petals to partake of the seeds, agree that their appearance is most welcome!
And this year was especially delightful because not only did we have our traditional yellow sunflowers, but we had some radiant red ones pop up as well!
The bees seem quite smitten with this variety, as am I!
Ahhh…if painting were in my skill-set I would be rushing out to buy a canvas for this beauty is surely worth some brushstrokes!

Eye-popping, heart-stopping beauty. And I’m glad you have the skill-set you do! Thank you so much for these vibrant photographs.
I have some new red ones getting ready to open up…simple pleasures!
Those are beautiful pictures. The goldfinch one would have been perfect for my new photo challenge Bird of the day. Please consider adding pictures to this Challenge. http://grannyshotit.photo.blog/2019/07/07/botd-owl-at-the-dallas-zoo/ Thanks!
I think my whole blog is a “bird of the day” type blog, but I’ll try and tag you in an upcoming post. 🙂
Thanks. That would be very nice and helpful.
Soooo beautiful!!! I’m sure smiling! 🙂
Not quite time for sunflowers in the Colorado high country yet. I so enjoyed seeing yours, along with their visitors.
Ahhh…Colorado is a state I haven’t been too, but hear is absolutely beautiful!
Sure to brighten the darkest of days and hearts!
Do they sow themselves, Kathy, or do you sow the seed every year?
Some of the seed drops down on its own, and we always throw out an extra packet. This year is one of our better crops!
You’re certainly reaping handsome rewards!
Beautiful pictures!😊 I love sunflowers and they are useful for birds and insects to.
Failure to love a sunflower has to qualify as some sort of personality disorder!
Gorgeous shots, both bird and flower!
I love sunflowers! Great pics
Makes me feel I should include “Grow Sunflowers” to my to-do list.
By all means!!!
