Vibrant Visitors

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!

    Kathy,
    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!

    Not quite time for sunflowers in the Colorado high country yet. I so enjoyed seeing yours, along with their visitors.

    Sure to brighten the darkest of days and hearts!
    Do they sow themselves, Kathy, or do you sow the seed every year?
