  1. Arija, you sweet and lovely thing. Your comment on my post "Perfectly Imperfect" almost made me cry, in fact brought a tear to my eye. Thank you very much. Kindred spirits easily dissect through the metaphor, alas, I don't see your email address, so my face is drooping like today's sunflower :(

  18. Oh, lovely, lovely indeed! Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos with us. Acacia is flowers that I love very much. Their little yellow flowers are simply adorable. These shrubs don’t grow in my country but we can find its lovely bouquets on our markets with the first spring’s sun rays. And your sunflower photos are wonderful. Its yellow colour matches great against that lovely blue sky. You made my day with this post.
