A Brief Moment for Sunflowers

Athena bought them for her mother, which I though was kind of her. They certainly stand out.
That’s it, that’s the post. Just thought you could use some sunflowers in your day.
One of the side effects of the Ukraine war is that we all found out Ukraine uses Sunflowers as a national symbol. (And right now posts about Sunflowers are sometimes related like that) You can definitely picks worse national symbols! But also, sometimes a Sunflower is just a Sunflower.
So, did you place them on black velvet or did you mask them out in PShop?
I can never again see sunflowers without thinking of The House in the Cerulean Sea.
I live in KS, so I have a sentimental attachment to sunflowers as do Ukrainians. What a beautiful kindness Athena gave, and what a nice post-thank you!
Lovely picture of those gorgeous flowers, very dramatic!
Very nice of Athena to bring them for her mum!
Nice photo. I love the Asteraceae, a very beautiful family of plants with lots of fascinating wild species too – I rather like Centaurea and a good Mayweed is always a sight for tired urban eyes. Quite a few of them move in interesting ways, if you watch closely enough!
Particularly fond of sunflowers— blame it on Mum. Thanks so for this and today’s post, John. A bit of tranquility these days is never unwelcome.
