Fields of Yellow!


Fields of Yellow!

There were roughly 2,000 acres of these sunflowers.
We had seen a beautiful crop of them months back and they were considerably taller, but due to the drought (Yes, deep south Texas is in a terrible drought) the sunflowers were "stunted". They're still gorgeous to look at though. Yellow is one of my favorite colors so of course I could not get enough of them.
This crop of sunflowers will be harvest and used for the oil.

I want to apologize to anyone I was not able to reply to this past week. E-Blogger had erased my latest posting and I was unable to post at all. I know this is not uncommon and thank goodness with a little patience all was repaired. Now I just have some catching up to do!

Very nice. We never see them growing in such abundance here, though I am sorry that they are stunted and that Texas is in such a nasty drought.

Love sunflowers! I planted some seeds and can't wait until they poke their heads through the soil. Great photos!

What a beautiful sight. I love sunflowers and don't think I've ever seen so many. Very nice pictures.
Hopefully we'll all stay up and running after all these blogger problems.

I really don't understand why some parts have drought and some parts are flooded. But yes the sunflower are gorgeous and just wish that this year I could be able to visit a sunflower farm here in MI. Great shot and thanks for sharing!

Last year when we went to see our son and daughter-in-law in Colorado, we passed acres and acres of sunflowers. I was just amazed to see so many. They were absolutely beautiful, so I know how much you enjoyed seeing these! I'm sorry that you are having trouble with blogger. For some reason, I cannot see some posts and I cannot put a background on mine, because I lose my posts if I do. It is so frustrating. There are a couple of blogs that I love to visit, but I cannot "see" them. I've e-mailed them and they say that others are responding with their comments, so it has to be mine. I hate that. I may just stop blogging!

What a beautiful field of sunflowers! They make you smile, that's for sure.

I had to read your last posts cause I've missed them before and I just wanted to tell you that here in Sweden mother's day is always the last Sunday in May!! Funny how different it is around the world.

Hope you have a nice day.
Love Elzie

Hi again! How lovely you work on your DH's family tree. I have heard of Cavallin but can't remember where or when?! Do you know where they come from in Sweden?
I too work on my family tree and some relatives emigrated to USA in the 1800 but their names weren't Cavallin. I will try and find them too when I've come that far.
Thanks for visiting me.
Love Elzie
