Hello, Sunshine!

One of the things I look forward to every summer up here in Wisconsin is the arrival of sunflowers.  I believe I'm correct when I say that farmers rotate them around just as they do most all crops; so, you can't always depend upon the same field each summer for a glorious show.  I did happen to find one, though, about ten miles south of our home and couldn't wait to share them with you!  The pictures, of course, do NOT do the scene justice!  Acres and acres and acres of these things!

This was just such a beautiful sight!  I have a few planted outside the chicken coop, which will be blooming soon (if I continue to keep them watered during this drought!).  Hopefully, I'll be able to share those as well.  I've missed blogging, but I am dealing with a painfully s...l...o...w computer here.  You have no idea how long this short post has taken!  That, plus, I have fallen prey to the Candy Crush addiction (I'm so ashamed).
Thanks for visiting!


  1. The sunflowers are stunning! The mass planting makes it look so beautiful. When are you headed back down South?

  2. You know, you just can't help smile when you see sunflowers! ;)

  3. These photos are just gorgeous! I really enjoyed seeing the fields of sunflowers in beautiful Wisconsin. We don't see sunflowers as a crop in Iowa. I do feed the birds sunflowers and they drop a few, which grow. I enjoy seeing goldfinches perch on my volunteer sunflowers eating the seeds directly from the seedhead. Have a blessed day, Nancy.

  4. Love your sunflower photos, sunflowers are such happy flowers!

  5. Wow, what a beautiful sight. To have that close to home must be so glorious!!! I adore sunflowers. Thanks for sharing.


  6. Nancy - WOW - I can't believe you have whole fields like that. Beautiful!
