Almost Regal !!!

Good morning one and all !!

Today's hub is about fun and laughter ;two very important qualities in life which when the going gets a little tough we tend to overlook them !!!

The Sunflower is very real and as well as making us laugh these beautiful sunny giants are gloriously mesmerising !!

Sunshine blazing from all directions !!!!

I have only included only one poem as I felt that too many would somehow diminish the fun side.

As I was creating this hub I was wondering which song to add and as soon as I typed 'laughter' into YouTube this beautiful song by Neil Sedaka popped up and what better song choice.

I hope you enjoy today's visit .

Standing so grand

A vision of wonder;

My heart fills with pride

Oh flower of wonder.

x

Wow as many as six

Sunflower of wonder

And another five buds

Such true flower power!!!

x

Is this a record breaker ?

Will I now be famous?

Oh how I now stand tall

Greedy ego enormous!!

x

I sit down to google

Oh what will I find?

It simply has to be

Just one of a kind!!!

Eddy Queen of Sunflowers on her throne.

Right I am now there

My heart gives a jump!!

But oh dearie me

Down to earth with a bump.

x

In these lands far away

They stand tall and proud!!

Two dozen and even more

Mocking from their cruel shroud !!

x

But now wait a while

Is she a Welsh Queen?

To return to googling

Not the end of my dream.

Sunshine and laughter

Fill each day with happiness

Such priceless free gifts.

I hope you all enjoyed today's visit and here's to so much more fun and laughter for us all to share on here.

I shall also let you know when I am done with googling whether my majestic sunflower is indeed a Welsh Queen or not. Ha ha ha!!


I will leave you with the quote "Laughter is always the best medicine!!"

Lots of love from my little corner of Wales and I wish you all a wonderful day.

Eddy.

Great fun viewing your sunflowers and reading your poems.

Do you collect the Sunflower seeds, toast them, shell them

and eat them? Or, do you leave them for the birds to eat?

Love the picture of you in the queen outfit.

This was a very good summer for sunflowers in our neck of the woods. We gathered quite a few seeds.

Lovely as always my friend, and fun to boot.

Hi DJ thanks for the great comment ;it is so appreciated. We don't actually eat our Sunflower seeds we simply feed the birds with them.

However so pleased we've had this multi headed flower which through photos we will remember clearly.

Have a great day.

Hi Billy so glad you enjoyed this hub and I had great fun creating it. I think that at times it is so easy to get bogged down in life's weariness but there is no better tonic than a little fun now and again. Here's wishing you and Bev a great day.

Dear Eddy,

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful pictures of sunflowers. They are indeed giant and powerful flowers! I like the way you present them :-) I have a groundhog wondering around my plants, eating my lettuce and echinacea.... as well as the sunflowers of my neighbour :-(

Enjoy your day!

I love that guy standing at the bus shelter with the sunflower behind the glass. I would love you to teach me how to do that in Photoshop. I am so useless at Photoshop and seeing that, does make me want to try a lot harder. Actually I think your sunflowers would look great in your garden with a large picture frame placed around them, just like the image I have on my Object d'Art Hub. The pictures you posted are beautiful, the flowers so vibrant and so beautiful with their greens and yellows, certainly a feast for my eyes. Just for me, how about photo shopping a little red ladybird right on one of the petals! Just a little challenge, from me to you. Thank you for sharing your photos, they are really lovely and I so enjoyed this Hub. Best wishes, Sally

PS Definitely voted this one up.

Eiddwen 3 years ago from Wales Author

Thank you so much sallybea for this great comment. You have certainly given me some thing to think about and I love that. I will most certainly try and get that ladybird added.

I am going to have another peep at your hub to see your frame.

Thank you again and here's to so much more for us both to share on here.

Have a great day.

I love Queen Eddy...before I read the subtitle above the pic I thought...there is Queen of Sunflowers, Eddy. Cool.

This is awesome . You can not find the magic of sunflowers? Your photos are simply glorious.

You just keep getting better and better. I love coming here, Eddy....many Angels are on the way to you this afternoon. ps
