Sunflower Fields






Tecumseh Land And Trust
Rt. 68
Yellow Springs, Ohio
Oct 1, 2013


Remember when I went to visit the sun flower farm during the
summer and I had missed it?  They had already harvested the seeds
and done a second planting.  Well, I drove by yesterday and this is
what I saw!  It was worth the wait! 

 You can't look at sunflowers and not feel happy.
 Look there...I see you smiling! :)

    1. I know...it's incredible! Last year was the first year I knew about it! I've lived here for 30 years...makes me wonder how many seasons I missed! Hopefully it wasn't there all those years and I didn't know! ha.

    1. It's really something! They have signs warning for slow traffic out and there's always several cars pulled over and people taking pictures.

    But that........WOW.....spectacular!
    I can just see you...trying to get the best shot! ha!
    That first pic would make an awesome header!

    2. haha...do they have you on some loopy meds for that sore throat? haha.
      I don't think they usually do a 2nd planting, but spring came early this year and I wonder if they just took advantage of the extra time. I'm glad they did. Kinda nice to have this in the fall!
