Texture Tuesdays: free and easy edition

Sunflowers are such beautiful flowers and the sight of them always brightens the dreariest day. Last week I was staying close to a field where you can pick your own and made sure I had my camera with me.

Collage obsession: summer

Summer for me means fields of sunflowers in southern climes. I love the fact that the French word for sunflower – tournesol, and the Italian – girasole – mean turning towards the sun. On dull days the sunflowers hang their heads but when the sun comes out they are revealed in all their glory.
