Sunflowers and Ivy blooms

Driving down the highway the other day I came across a couple of fields of sunflowers.  I just had to stop and take some pictures.  While I was taking pictures, two other gals stopped to take pictures also.  I hope you enjoy these sunny flowers

The wind was blowing so they aren't standing as straight and tall as they can.

I wish I had a high powered zoom so that I could have gotten the full effects of the acres of these happy sunny flowers.

Remember the Ivy bloom I showed you in my last post?

I was sure that I had planted an Ivy plant that was almost dead from my mom's pot.  You probably all thought I was crazy thinking the Ivy was blooming.  Well in a way it is, but it is an Ivy Geranium and it is getting another bud on it.  What a nice surprise.  I'll get a picture of it when it opens.

I hope you are all having a good week.

Does anyone know why blogger is not showing followers or letting people join as a follower on some of the blogs?

Your photos are just beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing them. I had a feeling that sunflowers were blooming somewhere 'cause they were so plentiful at the places that sell cut flowers. I did a blog post recently of a sunflowers in vases. Having each one standing in it's own vase made it easy to appreciate the beauty and detail in each flower.

One of my favourite flowers are sunflowers
I love their happy sunshiny faces
and they always manage to brighten my day.

Lucky I didn't pass by that field or I might have come away with armfuls of them!!!!

Thanks for posting the photos.

Have a good day

These are spectacular. Sunflowers are one of my favorites. I even painted one -

Thanks for your visit! Just keep painting. It's a difficult medium, but the colors are beautiful and the cleanup a snap!
