Sunflowers

Remember the blizzard of 2011? Well I do. Remember how Mike, a neighbor, took his Bobcat from driveway to driveway to help his neighbors clear their driveways (read it here)?









Even though it's not their job most days, Mike and his wife Lisa have made me happy again.



They have planted an entire field with sunflowers.



Now, every morning, I have to adjust my drive to work taking the long way (5 minutes vs. 2 minutes) just to see the sunflowers look in my direction.


Have a great Monday!

  1. Hi Theresa .. that's the most glorious thing to do - plant a field full of sunflowers - just gorgeous ... and well worth an extra three minutes for a drive .. the best three minutes in a day for a few weeks probably .. just the delight of the field of sunlight .. cheers Hilary

  8. How wonderful. They're very beautiful. An unplanned forest of sunflowers sprang up around our bird feeder. I love seeing them out there.

  9. How I love sunflowers. Sure wish I had a field of them to drive by every day.

    And, yes, I definitely remember the blizzard of 2011. What a time that was.

  11. There is nothing more cheery that a field of sunflowers!! We have a street behind us that every spring is a mass of pink & white bahaunia trees...I change my normal route for that two weeks just so that I can admire their beauty!
