A Second Look--August 8, 2012

A sunflower, that sprouted from birdseed, bloomed this week. Sunflowers certainly are spectacular flowers and this one is no exception. You'll notice that I included more than one picture of it because it makes me smile when I see it. Also, our lone peach continued to ripen. I picked it today after I found a small bite out of the back of it. I hope that I get to have a bite also.

Here's what I saw this week during a Second Look.

Look, more crisscrossing spirals for Ward.

I can't get enough of this sunflower.
