My Sunday Photo 27 September 2015


a beautiful sunflower blooming in a back lane at Brunswick Heads NSW


I love this big, beautiful sunflower.  Mr P. and I were walking down a lane between our motel and the main street of Brunswick Heads which sits next to the gorgeous Brunswick River which heads to the sea.  In fact, the ocean waves crash just across the river, and past the scrub.  It is a lovely peaceful little town (for the moment, till the trendies move in).  We came across this stunning flower (never mind the stray boot in the foreground).  We love to head down to the Northern Rivers region of NSW as often as we can, to visit friends and take in the gorgeous countryside.

  3. I didn't notice the boot until you pointed it out, I was too intrigued by the seeds in the centre. Sunflowers are so you joyous.

  6. Sunflowers are my favourite! They're such a happy flower. I wish ours grew OK this year...we accidentally left the window open one night when they were shoots and the slugs got them! This is so beautiful xx #mysundayphoto
