sunflowers

my favorite flowers.... what a delightful surprise when hubby told me there was a huge field of sunflowers right here in n. alabama, just a few miles from my home. reminds me of the year i was in kansas....there were acres and acres of these beautiful flowers and i never tired of looking at them. i hope it's something that will be repeated many summers to come.

Your pics make me smile. I've see the sunflower feilds in KS. Amazing how they go on forever and ever. I love you shots. They make my skin warm. We have a few around here but wish it could be a fiels.

I took a little girl to see an area here that has a nice expanse of them and she said: Those are the biggest daisies ever!~Mary

Hello stranger!
Once again, we are on the same page. lol
Just yesterday while driving home, I stopped my car and got out and took a bunch of sunflower pics. Love your butterfly one and the last one peeking at us.
Good to "see you!"

Gorgeous shots! I love sunflowers too, I think they are such a perfect flower. The goldfinches have eaten most of mine by now. Great to see you again!!!!!

What have you been up to? Ah, the sunflower is such a vibrant flower. They used to plague my dad, growing like weeds in his grain, so I didn't quite know if I was supposed to like them or not, but now I love the cultivated kind. Gerry

I love finding sunflower farms! Haven't seen any this year though. :( You got some splendid photos!! And how lucky that the butterfly visited while you were shooting. :)

I love, love, love sunflowers! Yours are so pretty, nice that you found them. I never tire of looking at them. I used to hang them up for the birds to peck the seeds after they'd died off. Jeannette xx

Those are beautiful. If there is one thing I don't get here, is a big field full of sunflowers.
