Hubby Dear came home from work and said his company had received an email from a local farmer inviting folks to come and photograph their sunflower field...so we went! It was a perfect day for photography...the sky was bright blue, the sun was shining...and the flowers had their little faces toward the road...as if they were waiting to see us!
I am 5'7", so I'm guessing the flowers are all about 6 feet tall. Just look at this sea of yellow! Isn't it amazing?!?!
You know how I'm always saying sunflowers are "happy flowers"? Well, as we were walking down the road looking at the field before us, the strangest thing occurred: the leaves of the flowers were waving up and down...like they were applauding! Oddly, there was no other discernible breeze...the trees weren't moving, the grass wasn't blowing...only the leaves of the sunflowers. I told my hubby they were applauding their Creator for such a magnificent day!
As we walked back to the car, I could have sworn I heard giggles and laughter! They ARE happy flowers after all!
Sometimes, even "Podunk, USA" has its beauty and surprises!
