Sunshine makes ME happy too, John. I'm read for a bit of it. Love the pictures, as usual. But the quotes start my day right. :-)

Gazanias are wonderful photo themes, they have their "own sunshine" indeed.
I like the strong contrast in this photo, the bright petals pop against the dark background.

You Northern Hemisphere people are certainly looking forward to some sun. While we are looking forward to some cooler temps.
The black background is very effective.

Beautiful! You've reminded me I want to get some of these this year.
I think I forgot to mention last time I visited but I LOVE your header. It has such a lovely soft look to it. :)

You mentioned the color still on my dried star bloom. It might surprise you to know I've had it since last May. The color surprised me too.
