Guess Who's Back!

I'd love to wander through a field of sunflowers wearing good hiking boots in the fall. I think sunflowers capture the autumn's palette so perfectly!
I really enjoy taking photos of sunflowers; here are a few I've taken lately.
Sunflowers are so beautiful! I love their deep rich brown, and golden yellow colour.
I'd like to photograph a large field of sunflowers in full bloom as far as the eye could see...
Don't you love to bask in the sunflower's warming glow? What about these beautiful Sun Lovers? Take a look!

Hello, everybody! Oh, have I missed you so! I realise (realize) it's been quiet here for a while. So, let's party!
Hope you all had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to a great fall.
In fact, with sunflower fields in full bloom it's hard to believe that fall is already upon us.
I came back a week ago, but I am not really into the swing of things yet. Well, I know I have to get going... just can't find my mojo.


What I get to do is to fully prep for fall and write down my "To Do" list for the upcoming season.

During my vacation I had very limited Internet access...so, my apologies if I was not around much.
On the other hand, it was a great relief to spend some time away from my computer.
I needed the vacation- trust me, since this year I was under quite a lot of pressure, not to mention the last time I was sick. (Oh my gosh! it completely wiped me out for an entire week!)

But anyway, I promise to get back to you and visit your lovely blogs really soon.
It's good to be back! xx


Next up: Vacation photos.

P.S. I am still catching up and sorting through e-mails and answering them when I find time.

Susan Deborah said...

It's wonderful to have you agin in the loop, dear Betty. Glad that you had a lovely offline time. And sunflowers, I wish I could lay down in the brown bed surrounded by yellow petals. The flowers also reminded me of van Gogh and his sunflowers.

Have a lovely weekend and happy September to you and yours.

Joy and love,
Susan

Your photos remind me of 10 years ago when my husband tools pictures of me in a huge field filled with sunflowers - we were on our way to Rocky Mt. National Park. I could not believe my eyes.....whole fields full of yellow. Your photos are great. They have put a big “memory lane smile” on my old face.genie
