Sunflowers

There were no sunflower fields in our area this year..at least none that we knew of.

We were in Detroit Lakes one day.  I spied a few sunflowers.  Far Guy said “You are going to take a photo aren’t you?”

Of course their cheerful little faces cannot be denied.

Sad sunflower

Have you ever felt like this..so tired it was hard to hold up your heavy head.  I know I have.

How can one plant evoke two completely separate emotions?

Next year I hope someone grows an entire field full.  No better way to waste an afternoon…photographing a sunny field:)Sunflower Field in 2011

  8. Yes, me yesterday evening. Feelin' spry this morning though! I only had three sunflowers this year and they were volunteers from my compost I spread on the corn. I missed them and will definitely have a large planting next year, but no field and I'm not exactly a Sunday drive away!

  12. I love a happy field of sunflowers. I've had trouble growing them for the last few years because those wascally wabbits nibble the stems as soon as they pop out of the soil. I will try again next year!

  15. When it's fall and cooling off and things are turning brown it's great to see something so bright and cheerful as sunflowers.

  16. What an odd sight to see posted here just after you announced the season's first snow! ;)

    We used to have fields of sunflowers near here, out on the islands in the delta. Beautiful sight.
