Happy Friday Everyone! :)

This week has just flown by! I didn't get as much done as I planned to do but hopefully I will hit the painting with a vengeance later today. :)

But before that I wanted to share my Friday Flowers with you :)

I have pretty much run out of Flower pictures in my Garden, it has started raining here and everything is turning brown and not in a lovely Fall colour way :(

So, on my travels around the local neighbourhoods (just call me the Garden Stalker, get it (He! He!) I found some lovely Flowers that I do not get to grow in my Garden :)

So, this week's Friday Flowers are some of the pretty Sunflowers that I found in the "Hoods" :)

I hope you enjoy them too! :)

I love the colours in this one :)

And the way the Petals curl and wave :)

All the fun things that are happening in the centre :)

How some can be small :)

And some large :)

Such Happy Faces :)

I love this in B. & W. What do you think?

Oh that Sunflower is definitely waving at me :)

Some grow in different directions :)

Such powerful colour :)

Little Tutus :)

Looks like a Sunflower Coffee Morning get tog. :)

This center is so orderly, beautiful :)

Radiant :)

Is this Australian! (jk :)

I was really excited about this shot and the "Bokeh" on the left  :)

I love the hint of the distant fields still in late afternoon sunshine at the top of this shot :)

This is my Fav. I think because of the colours and the near perfection of the flower and the complete sturdiness and uplifted and uplifting Face :)

My Hubby and I were walking around a community garden and we were greeted by this adorable Cat :)

Who processed to escort us around, maybe it was a "Watch Cat" making sure we didn't steal any of the AMAZING produce :)

Those marking are just gorgeous :)

I think at one point it got bored with us :)

Giving my Hubby the evil eye :)

And just look at those Whiskers, beautiful :)

I hope you enjoyed Friday Flowers!

Have a Lovely Weekend everyone, see you next week :)

Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.

The sunflowers around town have been driving me crazy - in a good way! I love them so much. They're such a great harbinger of early fall, getting ready for the cooler weather, boots, jackets, mugs of hot tea by the fire...

Panda said...

OOh Pretty! I love sunflowers! what a cute cat, my cat does the same to people walking in my hood.

Kendra said...

Great picture! I love how much the flowers vary even tho they are all the same kind!
I used to wander my old neighborhood and take pictures of all the flowers around too :) Hope you enjoyed your walk!

You are so very talented. Please point out to your neighbor that when the flowers have dropped the petals the seed heads will be ripe. A fun family project is to cut off the heads, let them dry and poke a hole through the top. Hand them outside for the birds in winter by stringing a piece of twine through the hole. happy weekend!

Gorgeous flower photos! And what a cute watch kitty. Perhaps he has some jungle cat blood to pull off that scowl so well? ^.^

I love sunflowers. I would full my whole house full of them if I could. Needless to say, I loved the pictures. Thank you for sharing them.

Annette said...

I think you captured the true beauty of the sunflower! It's sad to think the flowers will soon be gone! You have a great weekend too, T. :)

Gorgeous pics Poppy! So pretty - it's getting too cold for pretty flowers here already... and that cat is very handsome!

MAB Jewelry said...

Stolen flowers and a definite "stink eye" from the stealth kitty! Lovely.

Amazing sunflowers! I was sort of sad that I only got three big ones out of all the seeds we planted. I adore the one with the burnt orange middle. SO cool. And I love the garden kitty. I just want to reach out and hug him (or was it a her?)

Charlotte said...

Love the sunflowers!! I really like the first one and the one that was your favorite.

I also, LOVE that kitty!! It almost looks like a lion in one of those cute!

Pink Dandy Chatter said...

Those sunflowers are beautiful! And you took some great pictures of the "watch cat". Love!

Bethany Dirksen said...

I love that you caught that can in the act of it's protective duties! What a great guard cat :)

Hahaha - as my kids say make sure the cat doesn't do "Catjitsu" on your leg. You have out done yourself T. these are *Gorgeous* - I am in love with those orange centered sunflowers.
