This photo was taken while on a walk around the Maine Medical area of Portland. A friend was inside having a doctor's appointment and I took the chance to capture some of the gardens around the brownstones of the area. There are some really great shots in the folder, but these sunflowers are just too wonderful not to share! I use this beautiful photo as a wallpaper for my computer. What a great shot when it is all enlarged! Pretty as a smaller shot too, but definitely a kick butt photo wallpaper. You have permission to download and use for wallpaper only.

I think sunflowers are absolutely beautiful. My husband and I always include sunflowers in our garden. As a special gift to me each summer, my husband plants Mammoth sunflowers, my favorite variety, and a few new varieties so that I can see them from my kitchen window. I can enjoy the flowers all summer long and also delight in the sight of the birds that always arrive to dine.
I planted giant sunflowers in the rose garden. This is one of the small ones. So happy!
Yellow sunflowers do make you happy when you look at them. That is a nice photo. (07/31/2010)

These are some of my sunflowers sitting on a twig chair I built this summer. I had no idea how beautiful my sunflowers would turn out this year, so many colours, shapes, and sizes. Sunflowers are my favourite flower ever!

This is the talk of the town sunflower. Such an unusual color and so huge.

Some of my beautiful sunflowers from my garden.

These sunflower plants came up underneath our bird feeder and we let them grow so the birds could grow their own food.
That's my husband playing around in the sunflowers for the camera.

What a lovely picture, hi to your hubby too. I just love sunflowers. We had a huge one along our fence once, and everyone wanted to hug it. It gave off a feel, as if it were something/someone definite. (07/16/2009)
