Sunshine Flowers


Wednesday's word, as suggested by Donna at Garden Walk, Garden Talk, is 'Illumination'. 

These beauties are from the local farmer's market. Sunflowers are the sun's rays personified aren't they? 



 Let the sun shine on in! 

To see other wonderful posts inspired by the word 'Illumination'please click the link: Garden Walk, Garden Talk. I am also entering the Gardening Gone Wild Photo Contest with these pictures.

  7. An excellent example of illumination. The colour on these flowers creates their very own light in a room.

  12. What wonderful warm pictures. The sunflowers with their golden colors are so beautiful anyway but with the light filtering in on them they are gorgeous.

  21. Jennifer, these pix are just amazing - pure essence of sunflower! Also love your header photo, it's stunning...

  22. Wow, those sunflowers certainly pop - lovely pics!

    By the way your post should say that you are entering the Gardening Gone Wild competition.. at least I got here through your entry on GGW's gallery page.. The rules say "and a link to your blog post that includes the image (and that says you are entering the Gardening Gone Wild Picture This Photo Contest )"

    I'm sure you can still edit that. Good luck in the competition!
