About 30 minutes away from me, near the wonderful town of Lawrence, Kansas ( Home of the Jawhawks), is a beautiful sunflower farm. Early Sunday morning we went there to take photos and cut some sunflowers.
You just can't capture the beauty of fields of sunflowers, with all their little faces turned toward the sun. I don't think God was in church either, He was here!
There were several cars pulled over with people taking photos. I saw a cute family taking some portraits in the fields. I came prepared with a step ladder, because these are soooo tall I needed the ladder to look over the field.
This is my view standing in front of them on the ground. I am 5'3 and these were at least two feet taller than me.
Sunflowers really do follow the sun. Here is the backs of all of them.
The butterfly on the top center sunflower really blends in.
These sunflowers are grown for bird seed, not florist stock.
SO, after taking about 80 photos and chasing butterflies and dragonflies to photograph, we finally settled down to cutting some flowers.
There is a can to put money in for the sunflowers you cut. One dollar a flower, what a bargain. We had so much fun even in the heat. A big breakfast in town, and we headed home.
Hope you enjoyed seeing the sunflower farm, and I will be back with photos of sunflower arrangements!
