Skywatch Friday

Similkameen Skies

Blue summer skies and hazy summer hills are a backdrop for sunflowers in the garden on the hill, who complain to me of chickweed growing around their ankles.....


For more summer skies visit here at Skywatch Friday with many thanks to those who carry on this meme.

    And chickweed IS a nuisance, isn't it?

  4. They might be complaining about the chickweed around their ankles, but I love the sun in their hair - do sunflowers have hair? Or ankles?

  13. I had to visit my fellow SkyWatch Sunflower posters first thing! I LOVE your photo - the way the sunlight makes those petals look like they're glowing, and that beautiful backdrop - glorious! I agree with Wanda and Sylvia, this photo is worthy of framing and proudly displaying!

    (Do the chickweeds peck at the sunflowers' ankles? ;-) Poor dears, sunflowers so seldom complain about anything, it must really be aggravating them!)
