October SunBathing Beauty
A HappyWife original.
Actually, the flower is a Hubster original, considering I have a brown thumb. (We have a joke in our house.... whenever I bring home a new houseplant, my husband looks at it and says "Welcome to death row".... unfortunately, that's almost always the case unless HE takes care of it. I have a knack for killing plants.)
However, he grew some lovely sunflowers over the past month or so and I snapped the above photo in the late afternoon. The sun was hitting the petals in such a way that it truly looks like it was painted. It's not retouched at all.... this is just the way the flower looks. Pretty cool, huh?
