Sunflower Ladybug Vignette

- by Pamela K Wilhelm

This week's theme: Helianthus

They are named for the sun. Their symmetry is based on Fibonacci numbers. They are native to the Americas, but have traveled widely and have captured the eyes and imagination of people all over the world.

While I was working on this piece the childhood verse just kind of kept floating around in my head so of course it ended up as the title. In Jersey by early spring most of us start thinking about long hot days spent at the shore....just the best way to get away from the heat. Put that lounge chair in the water and maybe once in a while roam around the beach looking for shells. Sometimes there is a prize to find and keep. Just the mention of the Ocean makes my Grandaughter squeal with delight...the possibility of finding treasured shells and maybe just maybe even a Mermaid. Oh the fabulous imagination of a child!!!
