Poppies! I love how their stems are so skinny it seems they couldn’t possibly be strong enough to support such lusciously full blooms. They’re just happy little sidewalk heralds announcing to passersby that summer’s right around the corner. I love ’em!
Tomorrow I’m going sunflower hunting in Gilliam, Louisiana, with my friend Sandra and her sister. Gilliam’s Sunflower Festival is going to be on Saturday, so we’re hoping we’ll find lots of sunflowers to photograph tomorrow. When we went last year we drove around and couldn’t find ANY! Finally we stopped and asked someone, “Where are all the sunflowers?”
“That’s all?” we asked.
Although, seeing as how there’s a lot more money in corn than sunflowers these days, I expect we’ll find only a few sunflowers tucked in here and there amongst acres and acres of corn.
