Sunflowers

Is there anything more summery than a sunflower?

If there is, I can’t think of it…

We planted a few seeds in the spring….

And lastly, I just have to show you the photo that pops into my head whenever I think of sunflowers….

I took this photo in 2005 when we were on the train from Rome to Paris. Matt was looking out the window at the hillsides of Tuscany and the fields of sunflowers as far as the eye could see for miles and miles! Just breathtaking!
