For a friend…

To a  sweet friend in Paris who is moving back to the US next week.
Sending some cheer with a happy sunflower.This was one that grew in my garden about two summers ago.

“Today you are You, that is truer than true.

There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” 

Dr. Seuss 

Love ya, girlfriendl!

Happy day to all.

    Barb, this photo is STELLAR!!!

    I love the contrast of the sharp focus on the sunflower against the blurry sky – faaaaaaaaabulous!

    And I also LOVE the quote you shared from Dr. Seuss!

    ““Today you are You, that is truer than true.

    There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

    (((( Barb )))))


    P.S. and the best to your girlfriend!

    1. Hi Ronnie,
      Thank you so much, dear 🙂 I’m pleased that you like this older shot from my archives.
      It was a summer day that had a mottled sky and I remember that yellow in front of that “mackeral sky” as very pretty.
      Just a thought for my friend and Dr Seuss is a riot at any age. Never never take yourself too serious when you read Dr Seuss!

      Thank you for wishes for my girlfriend. She will blowsyou a kiss if when she reads this. 🙂
      Big hugs & xo

  2. Can never go wrong with such a beautiful flower! Friends come and go geographically-speaking but the bond lasts 🙂

    1. Hi Zhu,
      Thanks! Flowers speak a beautiful language of their own.
      Everyone sees this flow of friends during a lifetime. Expats just see it on a bigger geographic scale. Lucky that we have internet to stay in touch easily!

      See ya!

  3. Hi Barbara, I love the shot too. I love the cheerfulness and beauty of the flower. It was so nice seeing you the other evening. I will miss our mutual friend too. Let’s make sure we get together in August for some fun!

  4. Hi Jennifer,
    It’s nice to see you here! Thank you. I love the sunny disposition of all flowers, esp sunflowers.
    It was very nice seeing you and chatting. Yes, it will be hard to see our friend go. A really big change for us all.
    No problemo to see you in August! I’ll be around all month. Keep in touch and don’t work too hard.

  5. Awwwwwww……what an awesome gift to the friend. AND we get to partake it in too.
    Gorgeous shot — and I love the sky with the yellow of the flower. It just makes me HAPPY!

    Good luck to your friend……I shall hope good things for her.

  6. Bonjour Barbara, I am so happy that you and Jennifer go to see our wonderful friend , before her departure to the USA .. I hope that she gets it all sorted , and quickly, so that she can return to Paris, … I am thinking of her too, I have sent her and email 🙂 Hugs Anne

  7. Bonjour Anne,

    Good friends always find the way to stay in touch.

  8. Thank you again for this! I came back to re-read and soak up all the good juju here. It’s so touching to feel the good thoughts and good energy coming from so many people, and people I don’t even know. 🙂 I’m really moved by that. Thanks, Barb! ♥♥♥ Karin
