The Sunflower State

advice From a sunflower:

Be outstanding in your field
Hold your head high
Spread seeds of happiness
Feed the birds
Think solar
Keep on the sunny side
Grow up!

Upon arriving in Kansas we started a list of places to see/things to do while here, one of which was to see a field of sunflowers. They usually don't bloom this early and I figured that listed item would be left undone, but thanks to the early spring and summer, the sunflowers are blooming early! Their heads are a little bowed down, maybe the heat or drought, but they are all standing tall.

The list is getting shorter just like my time here in Kansas, sunflowers check!

Advice from Nature

I like the sunflower that's standing twice as tall as the rest of the ones in that field. It looks so ... umm ... regal?

I love the affirmation. I always regret when Joe and I drove through Kansas that I didn't make him pull over to get a shot of this.

Ohhhh, lovely. Any chance you could borrow a few seeds? My south 40 could use a few more sunflowers.

That one is definitely an overachiever!
