Mellow Yellow Monday: The Bellagio

bright upturned faces
sucking hungrily at sun
like babes at full breasts

Shut-down Ferris wheel,
remember the days when you
turned ’round and around?

  1. Lovely sunflower shot and I love the analogy in the haiku!

    Ferris wheel memories have me thinking about the time the carnival guy left me and my brother on it for ever until my Dad came looking for us. 🙂
    This must have been beautiful in person!

      Carletta, I can’t imagine being left on an endlessly turning Ferris wheel. The last time I went on one, about ten years ago, I thought I was going to be sick. Funny, they never bothered me as a kid, but as an adult…blech!

  2. wow..sunflowers again…i saw 1 sunflower from the other blog but here, there are plenty. wow.

  3. Delightful, bright sunflowers and love how the ferris wheel is utilised as part of the display!

      Gemma, whoever put this little garden together took great delight in splashing colors all around!

  4. What a refreshing
    group of flowers to start a
    new Monday morning

  5. Great ferris wheel! I think there must be some magic that makes them not fun for adults. I had a similar experience as I tried to show my young son how good it would be. I was scared silly…he had a great time.

  6. Sunflowers are funny. They look cheery and beautiful as one. And, when you put a bunch of them together they look even more cheery! I love how they look like lots of little heads sticking up! Happy MYM!
