Sunflower Love

While searching tonight through photos for the next Rural Roams segment,

I stumbled across this photo.  I've always loved this pic, taken the day after the Artist and I

were married. I'm kind of glad I saved it until I started to get the hang of using textures

because I think this freebie texture from Kim Klassen Cafe called Mad Love is madly divine. 

Sign up to Kim's texture lovin' list and she will email you a freebie texture each Friday.

And what's not to like about that?
And after all of your comments from yesterday's post, 

I thought this was the perfect pick me up for all of you longing for spring just as much as I am.

It's been a long winter baby,

so consider this a little gift of sunflower sunshine from me to you.


Every friend is to the other a sun, and a sunflower also. He attracts and follows.

Don't sunflowers just make you smile :)

They are so pretty. I'm going to plant them for the first time ever in my garden this year! I LOVE that vintage looking box, and the printed wellies in the background!
