Sunflowers at Y-S!!!

Every year, at a beautiful old farm just north of the town of Yellow Springs, a field of sunflowers is planted, timed to reach peak in conjunction with the formal arrival of Autumn. Here's this year's field...enjoy!
























Also, several nearby farmers have commercial fields of sunflowers, also timed to coincide with September sunflower mania. It is the most fun! I dare you to look at these pictures and not smile, and to be in the field with them, well, it is a most happy place...good for the soul, even in troublesome times.

I look forward to your visit to the sunflower fields every year Michael. The rich colours and wonderful rhythms have a great life to them. There are no such fields around where I live and I have never seen a field like this one. Thank you for sharing every year. Your winged winter visitors will be well fed.

Surely, the happiest flowers on earth. Thanks for sharing your super photos. I always think of a quote by Emerson when I see such flowers: "Earth laughs in flowers." xo
