Weekly Photo Challenge: The Hue of You

Yellow – The Colour of Sunshine…

I don’t know what it is about sunflowers but they do seem to excite visitors from Northern Europe, it is probably the spectacle of thousands of happy waving heads in contrast to the solitary one or two that we grow in our own gardens usually with disappointing weedy results.  This is because as their name suggests they need the sun and that is something that is not too plentiful or reliable in England.

  1. what an amazing field of sunflowers! I’m a huge yellow person, too! 🙂


  2. love yellow, love sunflowers too, nostalgic memories of holidays in gites in Indre et Loire and Normandy in the late 80s and early 90s with our 3 children. Bikes, chateaux, cheese, swimming lakes and the ubiquitous SUNFLOWERS!
    thanks for the memories!


  3. I love the ones in Southern California whose seed heads grow the size of large dinner plates. We have the same problem growing those here in the north.


  4. The sunflowers’ very colour makes me smile every time. 😉


  5. a field full of sunflowers always makes me smile – and reminds me of the first time I saw so many together – in southern Greece 🙂
