Sunflowers! God's Smiley Faces


I finally found a field of sunflowers. We drove 45 miles in traffic for me to take these photos. Who knew we had a sunflower farm that close?


and I wandered for many hours





April Fool!!!!!    I was in the Wal-Mart Parking Lot.

Oh you had me going. It didn't even occur to me that this might be an April Fools joke but I was wondering how you got Bob to wander for hours in a sunflower field :)

Oh you devil you!!!! ...:)JP

Jo said...

I, too, wondered how you got Bob to tag along while you photographed those beautiful sunflowers, let alone how he braved your traffic to take you sunflower hunting! LOL. Got me on that one! Our sunflowers are flowering now and looking too beautiful. And only minutes outside our town!

I don't care where you took these photos because they are gorgeous. The color and the angles, oh my!

You did fool me though.

Best,

No way, I can't believe those were at Walmart! One of my favorite parts of our European trip was seeing the sunflower fields in Paris driving to Italy. I LOVE SUNFLOWERS

carolann said...

Ha,ha. Beautiful though.

Wow!!!!

Ginny said...

You fooled me GOOD! I was wondering why you would drive so far in the traffic. I really BELIEVED you! Here, we do not get sunflowers till toward the end of summer. I LOVE these, and I love sunflowers!! They are my second favorite flower!! Your pictures are beautiful and glorious!! My favorites are the first three. New neighbors are moving in across the street, and we went over to meet them. They had retired to Florida, but moved back here because of all the traffic and heat! They have a cute little Westie named Zoe.

You STINKER! I love sunflowers! When I was in Nappa Valley, many of the vineyards had lots of sunflowers! I have tried to grow them but mine turned out ugly!

Wise guy! Lol It's so late in the day that I forgot all about April Fools. Beautiful sunflowers. Aren't they so cheery!

Ruth Hiebert said...

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Hahaha! You stinker! You had me fooled, although in the back of my mind I thought...she really drove that far to find sunflowers? OK, I would have done it, so I believed it! Beautiful. I love sunflowers!!

photowannabe said...

Well, you had me going too.
I had a hard time thinking of you driving for almost an hour just to take Sunflower pictures.
I adore sunflowers and I especially like the ones you took of the backsides of them.

You are too funny sweet Sandra. Your Walmart has sunflowers, wish ours did I would sure purchase some.
