A little splash of colour

In a brave attempt to stave off the heightened emotion prevalent during the upcoming Season of Grey Gloomy Misery Festive Good Cheer lovely Missus SilverPebble has proposed a weeklong 'Splash of Colour' once a month. To keep us all perky and happy as the days begin to get dark by three'o'clock in the afternoon there is a Flickr Group filled with bright shiny images. Among my contributions is this sunflower shot taken down in The Lower 40 Summer 2009.

At this time of year when the sun is so low and even on a bright day seems a little tempered it is amazing to me the intensity of colour that exists in the height of Summer.


  1. OMG does it really get dark that early??? Heavens, I'd be asleep by 5 for sure ;o)!!
    Joy :o)

  2. beautiful - definitely put a smile on my face!


  3. It's been fun to see all the shots of color -- your flower is gorgeous. I'm hoping to play next month -- this month has been just a bit too busy for me!

  4. I'm such a whiner that I can't stand it being dark at 5 p.m.--then again I wasn't too happy last week when it was still dark at 6:30 a.m. I guess you can't have it all.

    I do love sunflowers!

  5. I'm stunned by this sunflower. It's fabulous. Your hammock image has stuck in my mind as another summery happy image. Thanks so much for playing along xxxx
