Hello Sunshine!!!

My hubby leaves for work at about 5:40 a.m. and this morning he told me about this little field of sunflowers he drives by every morning…Sleepily, I asked for directions and when he thought the best time to photograph it…UGGGHHHH… he said right now…
So about 6:30 I was able to get enough caffeine in my bloodstream for my eyes and camera to focus together and headed out.
Now my dogs were not happy with me leaving this early. They both had allergy shots yesterday and preferred me to crawl back into bed to snuggle with them… I thought that was a good idea also…
We don’t have acres of sunflowers growing around here since this is prime corn country. A small strip of sunflowers growing alongside a cornfield that is accessible by my little car is rare.image
See my blue arrows in the upper right corner…I was greeted by this…well, hello sunshine…happy to see you also!!!
Enjoy the rest of my eye candy!!!

Wouldn’t it be glorious to wake up to this view every morning…

Perfection!

  9. What a beautiful and breathtaking scene....endless sunflowers. We have some sunflower field around where we live, and they are stunning! The farmers harvest them and use their oil for something...not really sure what. Love your 4th of July basket arrangement. Thanks for stopping by.
