Sunflower Fields For Ever

After four attempt we finally made it to the sunflower fields. The first attempt we blew a head gasket on our car, second attempt there weren't any, third attempt and they were all droopy and had seen better days and then fourth attempt we saw the magic of the sunflower fields.

I really wanted a photo in front of the fields but the grass was so long that I was a little scared to walk out to them. It was also snake season and this little girl is petrified of snakes.

Sunflowers are my favorite flower they are so bright and fun and always put a smile on my face. It was beautiful driving around a corner and seeing the amazing pop of yellow appearing in front of you.
 I hope these sunflowers have brightened your day and that you have had a lovely weekend. You can  still vote on my previous post Robot Wars voting is not closing until the end of the month xxxx

Hi there!

This post is absolutely beautiful. My husband and I traveled to Italy several years ago and came upon a sunflower field. From behind. I was too scared at the time to jump out and get a shot of the front view of the sunflowers. A tiny regret I still have! I should have been braver. :)

Your shots are just gorgeous. Would you ever consider selling a copy (digital or print) of the first photo?

I remember one of your previous attempts so I am especially happy you've managed to go. Now this is at the top of my list for the sort of place I want to visit. It is stunning beyoond any possible explanation.

Such an amazing yellow, what a treat! I am off to an orchids exhibition, love flowers as well!

You're on the list for the pink boxing gloves! I'll give the person who gets them before you some money to send them to Australia. The gloves are light; it won't be expensive. I can't wait to see them on you!

Beautiful!!!!! I longed for photos in a sunflower field in France 2 years prior. We only got to walk through a dead field of them and CBC took photos of me pretending to shower under one!!! X
