Sunflower, sunflower

All this sunshine yellow makes me feel giddy..

I have so many photos of me that I like sharing them.

Moonlight and me

As you've seen she's been photographing me in moonlight now..The first photo early evening when it was still incredibly light. The last two photos in the middle of the night..

Ah Sunflower

Ah Sunflower

Ah Sunflower, weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the sun;
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveller’s journey is done;
Where the Youth pined away with desire,
And the pale virgin shrouded in snow,
Arise from their graves, and aspire
Where my Sunflower wishes to go!

William Blake

Thank you Gaby.

"Well this is what i look like now...
My petals are slowly drying and shriveling.. but my seeds are forming in great abundance. My garden keeps on looking fantastic. Both my keepers keep feeding and watering me... I'm extremely strong looking even though I am short in comparison to my friend and neighbour who by the way also self seeded itself. There is a fabulous photo of a young thing...and hey I was young once.....and you can also see another five other sunflowers charging the front. I'm in the background with my back showing. The one with the enormous leaves.."

New Years Day 2009

New years day 2009...and my garden is performing beautifully... or should I say growing.. so far only a couple of 30 degree heat days... and I have enough water.. All my water from the kitchen, there are four buckets around the kitchen, Steve's hot water bottles during the day (he now uses 4) and if he has a bath that means a full bath of water.. and my every second day showers. Must take a picture of the set up.. I am so happy except it does mean I have to move the hose around every 5 minutes.. But hey. ...but as can be seen tomatoes, this lot some sort of small tom., are still predominantly green.

This looks very classy with the reclining deck chairs. Amazing what photos can do.. Chinese mustard gone to seed and tied around a the feeling of transparency and the colour...

My yellow petals or are they leaves? are starting to fade away and are drying up. But you should see my leaves...
