What a great shot. Wonderful perspective – shows the true importance of a sunflower – and it’s bee (?)
Ha! You spotted the bee. It was nice of him to drop in. He wasn’t fooled by a flower that thinks it is being the sun 🙂
looks so majestic! where was it taken?
In my back garden – a late bloomer. It just kept getting taller. I was sure it meant to take off 🙂
One very perfect bloom.
Is that ice? on the crab apples???
Yes, and yes. It looks amazing doesn’t it.
Has winter come early over there? Or are they from your archives?
That crab apple pic was from last winter. The fact that it’s at the top of the post is a wordpress oddity. If I don’t write any text, the photos from the links to posts that wordpress ‘thinks’ are related to the new post become separated. For some reason the photos then appear at the top of the post, while the links remain at the bottom. Duh! It looks quite attractive, but causes confusion. I must remember to write some words next time I just want to post a pic.
WP do seem to have a mind of their own and can be frustrating.
Phew! The colour of the sky.
Yep. We’re having an Indian Summer.
Excellent! That makes a very pleasant change I’m sure.
The mercury has been nudging a bit past 30 for the past week down here. Even the fish are sweating.
The nights are almost frosty here, but in the sun it’s blissful. Just the temps I like. I don’t do ‘hot’. Btw I’ve got a spider for you. I shall post it later in the week. A definitely incy wincy.
Look forward to seeing it.
Top photo on the right – the colour is breathtaking! What are they?
Aquilegias (columbine) self sown. The deep mauve ones at the back have come out more blue than they are in real life. My camera does strange things with colour at the blue-mauve end of the spectrum.
Hmmm, no. We must be looking at different posts, or all the photos are not opening due to crappy internet in Turkey. The things I’m looking at are some kind of bright red fruit.
Ah, those are my Japanese crab apples. They’re in the middle on my screen. They are tiny but oh so beautiful, and deepen in colour through the autumn and winter. It may not be your internet so much as wobbly wordpress. If I don’t write any text with a photo, the pix from what wordpress consider to be related posts that usually appear at the bottom, somehow get detached from the links. I think the links are still at the bottom of the post.
You must have been out with the fertiliser, Tish! 🙂 Indian Summer? Not up here! Fogbound 😦
Not a bit of it. It just snook up on me. Sorry the weather’s not better with you, though.
