Today's Flowers blooms again!

Who can look up at sunflowers in a clear blue sky without thinking of our old friend, Vincent van Gogh and how he saw sunflowers? To compliment my photo, below is a reproduction of a painting by Paul Gauguin, called Van Gogh Painting Sunflowers. Gauguin supposedly found Van Gogh's painting style intolerably messy and indicative of his bouts of insanity.

I took my photograph yesterday when the sky was really that blue and this sunflower was actually reaching for the sun. Their size and stature are a surprise at first. And then their color always leaves me speechless, where I remain, at least until I find the next flower.


See more flowers at Luiz's meme, Today's Flowers. You'll see beautiful flowers from all over the globe, places we only dream about visiting, and then. . . you'll want to join in the fun!

Nothing says sun like a big, bright, joyous sunflower.

Leora said...

Delightful, realistic floppiness to your sunflower. Love any subject matter that Van Gogh painted. Blue sky background makes the flower all the more delightful.

Sunflowers always make me smile, and so does your photo. The bright yellow is gorgeous against the deep blue sky.

I am fond of sunflowers as are the squirrels who eat the ones I plant before they are mature! I really like the presentation of this one with the blue sky behind it!
