....and the shadows fall behind you ~ Maori Proverb p8130090blog ~clickity...click...CLICK~ I *adore* Sunflowers. They are quite possibility one of my very favorite flowers. And what I love about this time of year is that it's when the Sunflowers bloom. In our neck of the woods they are everywhere. They grow along side our roads, in our pastures and yards and bc we live in a farming community, there are fields of them everywhere you look. It's beautiful to drive past a field of them in the mornings and see all their 'faces' basking in the sun. This is another series. More to come! HappyHNT!!! hntbuttonbev21 ~xo

    I love sunflowers, too. There is something wildly prehistoric about standing in a field full of flowers, some as big as my face :)

    These photos are very lovely. I love the lighting and the tones. Lovin those polka-dot toesies, too.

    You will find out who your foot-fetish readers are with this HNT, Vixen ;)

    Such great memories this post gives me. Your photo is wonderful. I can see a bit of my childhood here.

    Happy HNT and thanks for the smile you just gave me.

    I’m not a big fan of most flowers but I do love sunflowers! I had a girl who had a crush on me bring me a big boquet of them once because she remembered driving with me and me commenting about them. Was so sweet. =o)

    All the pics are great but I love the 2nd one best! Also, your nails are SO cute!

    Happy HNT.

    Love sunflowers too! Great pedi, too!

  15.   Morning GloryNo Gravatar Says:

    I love sunflowers as well. They’re so … bright and big and just cheerful.

    So, I dislike feet. They creep me out (except baby’s feet and toddler’s feet). However, you make them look good enough to kiss ;)

    Big hugs beautiful


  16.   Bad Bad GirlNo Gravatar Says:

    Lovely pics dear. Daisies are my favorite, nut sunflowers run a close second!

  17.   The Levi StoreNo Gravatar Says:

    im actually a qualified horticulturist by profession… in a past life.. We were taught to place sunflowers in water.. now please place them in water, rather urgently. :)

  18.   figleafNo Gravatar Says:

    I know the click-throughs are technically sexier, and they are quite sexy. But there’s something about the flowers and the instep of your foot in the front-page photo that’s just… mmmm!

    Happy HNT, Vixen,

    I LOVE BLACK EYED SUSAN’S! And your toes look so cute all painted up pretty :)

  20.   Red RiderNo Gravatar Says:

    Such a lovely picture. Love the color contrast and arranged with those bubbely toes ;-)

  21.   TriciaNo Gravatar Says:

    Those are great pictures! Love that toe ring.
    I’m so jealous. You and Os both have black and whites with just the splash of color. This is something I must learn to do! You will teach me this oh wise and wild one?

    Sunflowers are beautiful. My favorite as well, but they pale in comparison to you love.

    Sorry I’ve been away. But writing, working- Working, writing sucked up every bit of my visiting time.


    Can’t wait to see the rest of the series!

  22.   VicNo Gravatar Says:

    I love the sunflowers too. My father in law plants me a field of them every year. You’re toes are lovely! Happy day hun.

  23.   sweetcheeksNo Gravatar Says:

    When I think of sunflowers all I think of is this particular road trip we use to do frequently out in the middle of nowhere…I knew we were close to our destination once we hit the sunflowers…there were fields of them!!! 15-20mins worth off highway driving with sunflowers on either side…AMAZING!! Lovin your cute nails too :-) xoxo

  24.   DanaNo Gravatar Says:

    Excellent shots. Very well done.

    I know from your comments to Diana you like selective color. It appears you’ve mastered the technique.

    And they’re sexy shots too.

    aw, that’s sweet and sunny. many native americans have a saying that goes something like “look at the sun, not away from it, it heals your eyes.”
