The prettiest Sunflower I have ever seen...

Well - the last 3 days I really had an ordeal: computer crash - everything locked up because of a problem between my internet security program and the internet connection provider. I finally managed to get my system back running smoothly. So there was no GTS - photo yesterday as you can imagine - I spent about 14 hours yesterday only on the computer to get it running again. Now I can relax again and get back to normal work.

For you (and my my own soul healing - LOL) I want to show you the prettiest sunflower smile I have ever seen. This must be a new breed because I have never seen these before. When I saw them for the first time I had to laugh out loud because they looked so marvellously funny and made me simply happy. What a flower!!!

Be sure to click on the images for enlargement (as always) - Btw - I did not change these colours artificially - it was just a perfect day with a perfect flower!

Oh, Petra...I do understand...I've experienced 3 fatal computer crashes in my computer history...the first one was very traumatic for me, as that was back in 1998 or there abouts and I didn't have a complete back up system in place...what a nightmare. Hope everything is back to normal for you!!!!!

What a stunning sunflower...I've never seen anything like this before...so round and spikey...love the intense colors!

Cheers

Hi Jael - thank you - but it happens to me too - each time I see these flowers my face lightens up not matter what else is happening...

Rosemary - it is. and did you look at the photo with the 3 of them? They look as if they are talking to one another....how silly - ;)

Hi Heather - thank you for your kind thoughts - everything seems to run very well now - thank heavens.

Btw - the sunflower is not spiky at all - it feels rather furry - which is so funny! I had to touch it of course....
