  4. The happiest flower!! The grateful gal! Love you in that field.
    I always 'sneak' a giant sunflower seed in the dirt, after C has planted and landscaped the front yard so methodically. Luuuuucy....!!!? Lol

    1. Makes me smile every time! Sunflowers were actually an agricultural experiment in this part of Colorado. Didn't really work out though....the drought here in the west took a huge toll on the sunflowers and most farmers stopped growing them.

    2. Really interesting, so was this field on a farm?.....or sunflowers growing wild :)
      Similar story in so many parts of the world, of failed agricultural crops...particularly here in Australia. We've really underestimated the climate of this country.

    3. It was a random field. There are still a few sunflower fields here and there but the plant that was built to process the seeds for their oil was shut down a few years ago.
      The drought over here is pretty devastating for the local farmers. And I've been hearing news stories of the heat in Australia too.
