Still life with sunflower

Still life with late summer fruits and a fluffy sunflower.
Some people say that sunflowers are God's mistake when creating flowers.
On the contrary, I think, no other flower speaks about life so laud as sunflowers. The big, smiling flower disc is like an antenna for sunshine, following the journey of the sun across the sky. What a lesson in life!

What a unique variety of sunflower. I love it with the grapes.

The Native Americans of Northern Arizona have a saying that the winter snows will be as high as the summer sunflowers. It usually comes to pass.

Sunflowers are still my favorite flower and I love all the new ones that are on the market now.

I've never seen a sunflower like that one - how unique! I had some lovely sunflowers in my my garden earlier this year, courtesy of the birds :-) They're always so cheerful in the garden.
