Sunflowers and Dogs

I took these pictures on my way to work last week.  I have been wanting to stop and capture the big flower heads for a while.  These sunflowers are farmed and raised as a crop in our area.

The sunflowers are still yellow, but are close to getting ready for harvest.

It was a bright and pretty morning when I took these shots.

The teeny tiny sunflower seeds are filling and will soon be harvested.  The crop will be sold and processed into sunflower seeds, bird food or pressed for oil.

The connections we have with our pets is unique.  The relationship our pets have with eachother is also distinctive.

When we are getting ready to start a bright new day, may our connections bring happiness to our lives.  May we conquer the teeny tiny problems we face and not let them become more than what they really are.  Let us see the big yellow sun and be thankful for the light that spreads upon the earth.

    Love that last photo of your pups! Sunflowers are such pretty flowers, I can never get enough of them. We tried planting them in our yard a couple of years ago, but one of our neighbors left party lights on for about 2 weeks that the sunflowers got confused because of light 24 hours a day, we never got to enjoy their beauty!

    I had mostly small sunflowers this year — colorful, but not many seeds. The goldfinches have eaten most of them. Love these rural shots, Robyn. xo

    The sunflowers are amazing! I really love “bright” – so pretty!

    Huge sunflowers. I don’t see many around here—a few planted here and there, but nothing big for harvesting. There were two huge sunflowers (just the flower top) at the Pumpkin Festival this past weekend. They fascinate me.
    Cute pair of dogs. Lucky you to be blessed with two. Some day I hopefully will have at least one dog.

  24. Great picture of the dogs!
