Sunflower Fields Forever

You have Tulip Fields in April –

Lavender Fields in July –

And Sunflower Fields in September?  Who knew?

I’ve loved the seeds since I was a kid.  If I had a nickel in my pocket I’d stop at the store on my way home from school and buy a bag – in the shell of course.  I enjoyed them all the way home, extracting the toasted seeds until my fingers and lips were shriveled by the salt – they’re still my favorite road trip snack!

But my appreciation of the flowers for their own sake has come late so I didn’t know there was a Sunflower Festival in Snohomish last weekend. And with heavy rains now upon us I thought it was too late to see them anywhere in abundance.  But as luck would have it we had to go to Sequim today to purchase an E-bike (more on that in another post.)  And while we were there we stopped at Purple Haze – my favorite lavender farm – and I found sunflowers everywhere tall and bright and cheerful – under mostly clear skies too!

So now I know.

  1. I always love to see sunflowers, whether in great numbers, or alone against a fence. Nothing seems more cheerful than a big sunflower head. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Your card just arrived! Thanks for that. Unfortunately the USPS stuck some ugly bar-code stickers on the front of it, as you will see when the next post is published.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. I am grateful that someone got to see a lot of sunflowers this year. As you can see I am still irked at the woodchuck who devoured all of mine.

  4. Love this! You know my limited success with sunflowers here…the key word is “limited”! 🤣I saw some in the garden section at a store recently and did not allow myself to even think about buying any! Your photos turned out awesome! 🌻🌻
