Owls and Sunflowers

On Friday DH and I were back to "vacation mode"... we are happy to report that a mere mile from our house in two directions we can find wild life and amazing flowers. The burrowing owls seemed to have squired more young in our absence and this field of sunflowers came into bloom since we have returned. The latter being appropriate as I get my Sunflower Art Quilt ready to mail off to Mim on Monday. It's on it's way Mim, thanks for waiting so patiently for it. And thank you for honoring me with your purchase.


  1. awesome photo's lynn - can't wait for my own sunny sunflower

  2. Oh Lynn I must say those sunflowers are beautiful but what makes my heart go pitty patter and my spirit soar is seeing all of those burrowing owl pictures. Happy happy...

  3. OH LYNN WHAT DARLING PHOTOS OF THOSE OWLS. My Cat Daisy will turn her head just like that one owl.. all the way sideways sime times when looking at me... so funny. I wish I could see them in person. AND THOSE SUNFLOWERS are to die for.. GREAT PHOTOS. Lucky Mim on getting that quilt. Enjoy it Mim.

  4. OMG!!!! Those sunflowers!!!!! :)

  5. I just LOL at the owl turning his head sideways. I would love to try making a quilt out of that picture! Are you willing to sell a digital copy and allow me to try turning it into a wall quilt? You can respond to me privately if you wish or there may be others out there that would be interested in buying some of your photos too.
    Great shots...just love em.

  6. OMG...a whole field of sunflowers! Reminds me of a few years back when on a vacation, we came into a huge sunflower farm in was amazingly gorgeous!!! It was a U-Pick farm too!!!

    That one pic of the owl with it's head tilted is pricelass!!!

    So grea tthat you can get to wildlife so close to your home!!! I think that is what keeps us sane, is getting to be around animal and plant life...the closer the better!!!

  9. Hi Lynn,

    Nothing says summer the way that sunflowers do. They are gorgeous!

    I love the owl pictures. The owl with his head tipped sideways is SO cute. I wonder what it is thinking. You could have a caption contest. Wouldn't that be fun?

    Thank you for sharing your WONDERFUL photos. They are all beautiful.
