Isnt this a beautiful Sunflower.
My Best Friend J sent me some lovely birhtday greetings, along with this photo.
And this photo followed the first. Taken a month apart, she likened the progress of our lives, to the progress of the Sunflower.
When we were young together, we were like the full, fresh young flower, seeingly filled with endless energy for the sun & life.
And now, as we age, we are losing our 'petals'.
But I like to think of the rich bank of seeds in the centre of the bloom, carrying so much hope for the future.
It could represent the bonus of our knowledge & wisdom we have gained throughout our lives, & hope to pass on to our children, & their children.
I am being very spoilt today, by GOM. Get to do just as I please, & he bought me a delicious Black Forest Cake for my birthday! Sinful, but bliss!
And I would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all who left me wonderful birthday wishes on my blog. How lovely of you all.
And Molly, fancy your OC having the same birthday!
And I dont know what the hell Blogger is up to now, but it has taken away all the nice colours it gave me to use for print, & so I have to stick to black!grrrr.
