Among this picturesque landscape is one of the most spectacular sights I've ever had the pleasure of witnessing. It's the sunflower fields.
Zach and I have been stalking the fields watching the green sunflower stalks get higher and higher. Every couple weeks we take a ride with our cameras to see how the flowers have been progressing, Oliver usually joins us. We watched as the crown shaped flowers formed their disk shaped heads and at different parts of the day, moved their large green faces across the sky, always following the sun.
This was our first ride out seeing the flowers in bloom. We rounded the usual corner and I was expecting to see the lime green of the fields, but instead the landscape had transformed and almost looked artificial. It's so very, very yellow.
