Sunflower Update # 7832

We got another 1/2 inch of rain last night, in addition to a boat load of wind. Some of the sunflowers were a little wind-blown this morning...nothing too bad, though.
As you can see, the field is just a bit yellower today. Is "yellower" a word?

I thought that all of the cloud cover might keep more flowers from opening up. But NO! Still more are popping open. I'm thinking this weekend will be gorgeous!

Here's Ted going in for a close-up of a wheel bug.

Lots of flowers still look like this...which still makes for a pretty picture...I think.


But I am warning you:
If you plan to venture out into the field this weekend, YOU WILL GET MUDDY!!!
Don't say I didn't tell ya!
I wasn't brave enough to trudge in mud this morning, but it didn't stop Ted or his faithful companion Buddy. But they both clean up nice.


  1. Wow. Thanks for the update. I am looking forward to do photography. I did some last year too and want to improve upon my work :)

  2. Kris your flowers are beautiful I love sunflowers the closest I get to one is when one
    of the birds drop a seed from the birdfeeder and
    and squirrel does not find it and eat it the
    seed will grow and a I have a skinny small very
    yellow flower Now I know where the seeds come
    from..... have a nice sunny day Genevieve
