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