A LABOR OF LOVE~LABOR DAY FEATURE~The question I am asking myself at 5 am is "Where did the summer go?"A LABOR OF LOVE~LABOR DAY FEATURE~ by 33M
I remember waiting, staring out the windows at the late winters snow and storms, then searching, most times on my hands and knees for a
hint of green coming up out of the snow, feeling breathless if I saw a small hint of color attached to the green,then finally the flowers, stems, bushes, birds returning, bunnies, nests, eggs, and then "Bounty".
I have also seen many many artists grow and grow up here during the
past year. I have watched as many have pushed their old boundaries
out of the way and stretch themselves to new avenues, new techniques,
sometimes finally sharing their lifes dreams in new ways. And what is
Art if it does not ask a question, if it does not tell a story, if it
does not sometimes set the soul reeling...
I have collected many many pieces in the past couple of weeks, and

and Portrait/Street Work. Oh, did I m
Sunflowers! The Cheer They Bring and More...Sunflowers! The Cheer They Bring and More...Sunflowers! The Cheer They Bring and More... by TeaPhotography
If you ever need to cheer yourself up, just surround yourself with a field of sunflowers, or stand next to a wondrously tall Mammoth Sunflower and look up into its gloriously sun-filled face. Or be part of the process in your own yard, from beginning to end by planting the seeds yourself sometime in early Spring. Tend to them and watch the literal unfolding magic over the next few months- blooming usually occurs July through September!
If none of these can be done, you can always surround yourself with as much Sunflower Art as possible! Its also an excellent way to cheer yourself up.
Being a flower lover of any degree, chances are it is difficult to deny the warmth, love, or perhaps just plain AWE that is felt for Sunflowers. They are indeed amazing flowers for certain.
Sunflowers, most notably Helianthus annuus, come in many gorgeous varieties.

"My word! Will this day never end?!"
I glanced at Michelle, as she complained bitterly about the lengthy work day. My colleague of two years had always been vocal about her work when she was feeling stressed; today being no different. I knew that she had an assignment due for our boss by the end of the day and, as usual, had left things to the last minute. Now she was scrambling to make everything fit together in time for the deadline, as well as allowing time for our lunch out. We rarely had enough spare time to eat out nowadays, and today was a rare treat that we had organised weeks ago to celebrate a recent birthday. One way or another we were both determined to make this lunch; but I feared that if she didn't pull her act together, she wouldn't be able to make our fast approaching appointment.
"You know, we can always postp-" I began.
"So help me, if you tell me one more time that we can postpone that lunch, I'll ti
