Sun worshipper


Yes of course those of you who mentioned the sunflower (tournesol in French) were right. Look at the flower's heart carefully, you'll see the maturation process making progress from the outside to the center.

Oui bien sûr, ceux d'entre vous qui ont mentionné le tournesol (sunflower en anglais) avaient raison. Regardez-en le coeur avec attention, vous verrez la progression de la maturation de la périphérie vers le centre.

Et en plus il y a une abeille sur le coeur, ! J'espère que ce champ de tournesols n'est pas traité avec tous ces produits qui font mourir nos butineuses. Chaque fois que je vois un tournesol, je vois le soleil, même quand il n'y en a pas.

They are such amazing flowers, and these are gorgeous photos of them. That bee must be in heaven.

Perfect, just perfect! My son grew sunflowers in a large pot a few summers ago. One grew quite large. It was so much fun to watch the flowers form & then start to open.

C'est épatant. Toi et Cergie vous avez presque les mêmes photos, presque en même temps. Mais presque seulement. J'adore les tournesols, mais je n'en ai plus depuis des années. Il va falloir que je remédie à ce problème l'été prochain.

Your photos are stunning!! We have visited Avignon in June 2005 and I bought a lovely bright tablecloth with sunflowers printed on it at one of the shops close to the Pont du Gard. I want to go back to Provence one day!!

It is in this stage of development that the American Gold Finch birds love to pull the immature seeds out and eat them. I just took a lot of pictures of them doing that yesterday.

A very nice set of two photographs. Fields of sunflower are becoming a better deal for farmers than some other crops although there is a big rush on now to plant corn to use for fuel.

Gorgeous Nathalie! I like the two photos as well.

Je viens de voir que cela faisait l'objet de ton billet précédent mais c'est épatant à regarder, le centre de cette fleur! C'est comme les poupées russes: il ya des tas de petites fleurs dans la grance fleur. Très joli!
J'en ai aussi trouvé hier à Brooklyn. Euh, juste un.

This post any yesterday's are the essence of Provence. Add some lavender and we could smell the perfume of the pictures.

I noticed the little one that hasn't caught up.
