Flower Photo: Mammoth Russian Sunflower

Butterfly on Sunflower Photo By Aquariann

The unopened sunflower from last week grew up and found a fluttering friend! But then a bee declared it wanted to be the Mammoth Russian sunflower's bestie and buzzed the butterfly away.

How To Plant Your Own Post for Flower Friday:
The only rule to play is that you can only add one link per week! The post doesn't even have to mention flowers, but only ones that do will be eligible for being picked as a feature next week. I will be sharing my flower image on other blog hops, namely Wordless Wednesday, and welcome all family-friendly links from fellow bloggers. Crafters can even link up an Etsy listing or other shop product! But if you want to promote a prize, I suggest adding it to my Giveaway Chest Linky instead to entice more treasure hunters.

Please follow my blog through any of the social media icons in the upper right sidebar to receive a reminder to return next week. Adding my button or a text link to your own blog and sharing to your followers is also a fairy appreciated way to help my hop grow.

Flower Friday


Other flower hops where I've planted my post this week include Floral Friday Fotos, I Heart Macro, Saturday Show Off and Today's Flower.

  2. Aw, poor butterfly. Seems that huge sunflower would be big enough for the bee to share another one of nature's flower lovers.
