A hug for Susie

When I saw this sunflower it looked like it was giving a hug. So Susie, this hug's for you. :)

Aw :) This one, and the giggling one at my place earlier . . . makes me think there's a "Secret Life of Sunflowers," like they're doing all sorts of things we don't even suspect them of . . . until NOW. Thank you so much. Hugging you back.

That's it, Susie! There's a secret life of sunflowers. I hope they don't know that we're revealing it for the whole blogworld.

Thanks for the return hug. :)

Where do you encounter all of these beautiful flowers? My yard is covered with weeds. Send me some flowers!

Oh! I LOVE this! Very cool, Squirl. :)

"Secret life of Sunflowers"... isn't that a book?

Wow! It really does look like it's hugging!! I don't typically think flower pictures are "cute", it's usually beautiful, gorgeous, or breathtaking, but that's one CUTE flower!

Nick, I am lucky enough to have a friend who has a green thumb. She's also a photographer which is where I'm learning those skills. I have no flowers right now as I'm living in an apartment. That is to change very soon, though.

CK, thanks! If it's not a book, then it should be. Maybe Susie and I can collaborate on one. :)

Eclectic, I love the way sunflowers open their petals. You can read so many human emotions into them. And I agree with you, this one is cute.

Hi, Sierrabella! Yes, we are moving next month. We are buying a house. :)

We'll have to see how well I do with my own garden.

New house!!

Now this secret life for sunflowers, I can see it now: An extraordinary journey when Steve Sunflower comes out of the greenhouse and proclaims for the first time, "I'm asexual. Don't let the sun GO DOWN ON ME."

Thanks, Kranki!

Hi, Effie,! Thanks, we'll be moving over the next month as we're keeping the apartment through September. It'll be the most leisurely move I've ever had.

Kittn, it's so huggy!

Ladybug, thanks!

You know, I'll bet Susie hasn't had this many hugs since her honeymoon.
