I had been hearing for a while about a patch of sunflowers near me. On Facebook, a lot of people were talking about them and how pretty they were. So yesterday I decided to go see for myself.
The flowers were about 20 miles west of me and I went with the single purpose of seeing them. (Sorry, Sam, I didn't do the 3 trips things yesterday). I drove watching both sides of the road hoping I wouldn't miss them. And topping a hill, there they were. There was no way to miss them, they were bright, bright yellow and standing proudly right beside the road.
If that isn't a taste of sunshine, I don't know what is. Their yellow flowers and green stalks and leaves against the blue September sky......AH, lovely.
I wasn't the only one stopping to take pictures. Apparently the word has gotten around to many people. There were several cars slowing down to take a look and several more stopping for pictures. With smiles on their faces, men and women got out of their cars and walked around snapping pics. How can you not smile when faced with all this sunshiny happiness?
I like how the old barn looks as a backdrop to the sunflowers. Oh my what a lovely day I had yesterday. It was a perfect cure for the "out of sorts" feeling I had a few days earlier. And finally a photo for Sue at http://mrsmicawber.blogspot.com/.
I hope you like it.
As always, thank you for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day wherever you might be.
