Thanks M.

Many grocery store bouquets have these in them. I often think they are unappreciated. I love them.
Lovely shot Ann!

It is beautiful! The header you asked about a couple days ago was a sunflower. And my husband is just like yours, they love to search.Phil goes through all the channels. I love to find a show and watch. They say this is because men are hunters and women are nesters.

I love to get these flowers at the grocery store because they last a LONG time! This year I even saw them at the garden center as a plant to buy for a garden. ♥♫
