I started out to post first about what’s been taking all my artsy-craftsy time in the past 5 days, but I ended up starting with gazanias. They grow at the edges of my front yard and the sun today was brilliant. What I love about them (besides their ability to radiate sun) is all the different patterns found in one kind of flower. I’ve learned over the years to especially appreciate the variations on orange and brown (the yellows are most common and profuse).
Sending Official So-Cal Sun your way in these day shots (these flowers are the type to close up and sleep at night – my favorite: living in the moment and getting lots of rest in between!).
