Intimate Landscapes Seems like this cone flower dreams of being big one day. It’s raining here today and a bit gloomy, but this sunny bloom cheers my day. They were just a clump of humble dandilions, but then the sun broke through. I’m just glad he paused long enough for me to make an image! Shot with the Lensbaby Sweet 50. Summer sunlight warm and bright fills the air with glorious light. One of several of these gorgeous Coneflowers raising their heads to sun. There were so many varieties of coneflower at the greenhouse today. Perfect harmony. Nothing cheers the heart like a riot of delightful daisies. I love all the different forms of these cone flowers. This trio sings a perfect tune. Even the seed heads of the Globe Thistle are visually interesting. Like little fingers reaching out excitedly towards the light. This one daisy seems to stand out from all the rest. Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy. Now isn’t that a nicer sounding name than wild carrot? 😉 Something to brighten an otherwise dreary and overcast day in my part of the world. The twirling skirts of a dancer. I don’t know the name of this flower, but I enjoyed its sunny outlook on life. I really need to add these lovely flowers to my own garden. I love their sunny optimism. Dancing to its own music. Dancing with delight. Swaying on the breeze. Drenched in summer’s light. Excitement, sure to please. I wonder, did anyone tell these beauties that fall was here?
