06/24/10 - Flaming Sun
I stopped by the Garden Hut yesterday morning for a few minutes. They have some sunflowers growing out front, and I wanted to try to take a few pictures of them especially since they had about 5 different pretty varieties to enjoy. This is my favorite of the pics that I took. Something about the colors and light coming through the reddish petals.
I removed a hint of another flower in the far lower left, but otherwise it's unedited.
We're gonna break a record at 101 today. Yep, you read that right...Raleigh is gonna have record heat today. We've been near 100 certainly with a head index of 100 for 3 days already. Whew! I haven't been out in that heat too much. You basically walk out the door and melt at those temps here with the super high humidity. But I love Raleigh weather and this too will pass. We did get a brief sprinkle yesterday afternoon for a welcome and quick 15 degree cool down.
Thanks for your comments on the Queen Anne's Lace shot from yesterday:-)
