Flower Photo: Sunflower Birthday Bouquet

Sunflower Bouquet Photo

Didn't Ogre pick pretty flowers to make a birthday bouquet for me? Last summer I spent a lot of time photographing stunning sunflowers, so he opted for those to bring me sunshine during these winter days. In past years, he's picked purple dahlias, glittery spider mums and of course, the traditional red roses. My birthday is so close to Valentine's Day that he always gives me presents and flowers. I'm such a spoiled soul.

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, please add 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.

  20. Lovely shot! I hope you enjoyed your birthday. My guess for the violet coloured flowers is Alstroemeria (see: http://www.edelweissperennials.com/PlantGroup.aspx?plant=Alstroemeria)
    Many thanks for taking part in the Floral Friday Fotos meme.
