Sunflowers..and a giveaway on Giveaway day.

I planted a lot of sunflowers this year and have had 2 months worth of fun from a $5 investment at the animal food seeds shop...much cheaper buying your seeds there in bulk (nobody made me sign something to say that it wasn't going to be fed to birds!)



I just love them, they are such a happy flower, the kids agree, but did suggest that perhaps there wasn't a need to photograph them again! I must have disappeared into the backyard with the camera a lot. But it was like an elephant in the room...and you can imagine how often i would photograph that! I wanted them in all the different lights..and much more fun to take a photo of a sunflower than keep walking to the clothesline to hang another lot of washing. Here are a few for you...can you pick a favourite...and perhaps even win a charm pack? There are 12, with the firs being #1...and so on down to 12. OOps, editor's note, blogger has stolen 2! So only 10!





























I am hoping to add a new sunflower range to Tracey's country Cards, if you list your faves from today's photos for me, with the idea of the photo lending itself to a card, it would be a great help. Anyone who does comment today, on what seems to be blog giveaway day, will get an entry into the commenters prize of a charm pack. You can choose whichever you like from these two florally themed ones. drawn next time I post, so hurry!






The blog every day for a week prize is still on offer as well for all those that comment this week.





Have a great day, Tracey

Love sunflowers,the colours in the different lights, but the silouhette? on is the one I like the best, thanks

Nancy said...

i like the one second to last...that would make a beautiful card...but also one with the bees could be good ..it might appeal to someone looking for a sweet card with an underlying sting to it...

I love #1 and #9 the most, but think they are all just terrific!

I want sunflowers every year, but somehow it is always too cold to plant and then bam - to late to plant!

Marls said...

Great photos Tracey. Hard to pick but I would have to say Number 2-love the blend of colours and then 9-simple but with impact.

The silouhette. Definitely.

Love the Moda Sunflower fabric.

My favourite is also the silhouette of the sunflower. I have two cameras but have not been using them much - your pics make me want to get out and play! Been working too much and sewing too much, I guess!

Oops, should have also added it's great to see you posting again! I've been reading your blog for quite a long time now and I've missed your slice of life posts!
