Catherine, these are beautiful photos. I will need to take a trip to this farm. What a wonderful idea you are doing along with the farm. Good luck!

Catherine, You do beautiful work. I am definitely going to buy one picture maybe two! Great idea and I love the organization “Make A Wish Foundation” which helps out so many children. Very thoughtful of you.

Hi Catherine,
I just placed an order for some of your wonderful sunflower pictures! Also, since I know Ana, your Exchange student and her aunt, Rosa from Valencia, I was thrilled to see the outstanding photography work you did with Ana. I know she has grown in maturity and become more outgoing since I saw her in Canada 2 years ago and you’ve helped her even more in that process, I’m sure. God Bless you and know that you’ve made a difference in her life. Karen Yates

Hi Karen~ Many thanks for your kind words and for your order of sunflower photos. I will be making a donation to the Make a Wish Foundation in September from the sales. God Bless you too!

Theme for this week “Get In Close.” The sunflowers are in full bloom around our state and a perfect time to photograph them and get in close on the bees that just love them! The first photo is the one I entered into the weekly challenge…the others are just to share. I do hope you […]
