Mwah! Air Kisses

In an adjunct garden just behind our deck, we’ve planted sunflowers, and their location allows us to come face-to-face with the tall plants. Our intent is to get to the seeds before the birds do. Uh-huh.

A recent rain played around with the fragile flower petals, and we found this one blowing a kiss to the audience.

I was surprised to learn that the onomatopoeic word, Mwah has actually made it into Webster’s dictionary.
