#FOTD Flower of the Day ~ Sunflowers #Nature #Flowers #Photography

Back in January my daughter bought me a sunflower seed kit and now I’m reaping the rewards. They’re brightening up the dreary weather we’re having at the moment.

#FOTD Flower of the Day ~ Cherry Laurel? #Photography #Nature #Flowers

My entry for Cee’s flower of the day is from a large shrub or small tree that was well established in the garden when we moved to the house. After a google search, the nearest I came to naming it was cherry laurel.
