My New Friends

New field pics as of 5:00 this evening. More sunflowers are popping! Yay! Hurray! Whoot! (Did I just say "whoot?")

Pretty soon this will look like a flowing river of yellow sunflowers.

These, along with the majority, are still not there yet. Taking their time.

Can you believe the weather forecasters are calling for more rain? I'm not arguing
with that giant thunderhead in the background.

Have I mentioned that after a sunflower gets to a certain stage in development, it refuses to turn it's head to follow the sun. They fix themselves to stare East. Why East? Because they like to watch the sunrise. (Okay, I just made that last part up.)

When I was out taking pictures this evening, I stumbled upon this lovely mother/daughter pair(and lovely Grandma who stayed in the car). Three generations out seeing the sunflowers. Isn't that a wonderful thing? And here's the kicker...they drove all the way from Michigan! This is Melissa and Maria, my new friends...because you can't have too many friends! And you never know, I may just need a place to stay in Michigan someday. Sadly, they missed the field in it's prime, but I think they were still enjoying themselves. And I love that they were both wearing pink! When I have my picture taken in the flowers this year, you can bet I'm going to be wearing pink!
