Faith and Sunflowers

I planted some sunflower seeds on Boxing Day, which to non Australians and English is the day immediately after Christmas. They are now opening and starting to flower. My eldest daughter has always loved yellow so these photos are for her.



If you look closely at the photo above, you will see a grasshopper hidden in the sepals. Can you see him?
And here he is the day before. These hoppers can locate an organic garden so easily it seems but there is food for all of us.


And sitting at the computer last night, I put together a layout with one of my favourite quotes from Tagore:
Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark.

I hope you enjoy the colour.

Oh dear, I love this yellow and green :) Great shoots :) Sunflowers are so pretty. It's everywhere snow here so I miss these colours even more :) Thank you for reminding me how beautiful it is when it's green everywhere :)

What gorgeous pictures with the patterns of the petals and seeds and the cheery colors. I found the grasshopper. I saw your beautiful layout in the gallery. It is quite eye-catching.
