A wink from a sunflower

Sunflowers are the perfect icon to use for the first day of fall. The colors are right -- yellow, orange and green and if I had to describe the past month without using words, I would use this sunflower. It seems whimsical to me. I think it looks like it is winking at me and making the warmth of the summer stick around as long as possible.

So, using this sunflower from our garden, I would like to wish you a happy first day of fall.


  1. What a beautiful photo - it does look like a wink! I love sunflowers. I love the change of seasons and have 'a soft spot,' for fall. (I think it's the coolness in the air, appreciating the bounty, tasting fresh apples...I grew up in Miami and was in my twenties, in Missouri, before I experienced my first fall. My Journalism professor sent me around to write stories on why the leaves change. They also had a lot of Fall Festivals and it was fun to travel to them). Hope you have a Wonderful Fall, Joanie

  2. Yes, it IS winking at you! And Happy First Day of Fall to you too!

  3. It is a beautiful picture, and I especially like that you captured the bumblebee as well.
