Today's Flowers

Today’s Flowers was created by Luiz Santilli Jr. and is now managed by Luiz, Denise B. Castro and Laerte Pupo. If you want to share your own photo or only want to see wonderful flowers from all over the world, click on the icon above.
My photos are of a single sunflower.




I cropped the photo to show a close-up of the bee but unfortunately it was too blurry. I turned it into a small painting using Paint Shop Pro.

I like the first photo, of the whole flower, but then you have quirked thing up by posting 4 shots of the various quarters! What a good idea!
And the painting of the bee, to finish things up.
Spring will come. If we say it often enough, it will happen!
