On this particular day, there was something about this patch of sunflowers that made me drive to the next exit of the highway, turn around, drive back several miles and turn around again. All I knew is that I had to take some photos of these sunflowers. They just spoke to me.
Sunflowers are so beautiful and the sight of so many just lifts my heart. Yet there's also something sad about them. The sun is shining so brightly and yet they struggle to lift their faces completely. This is what drew me to them today. I love these pictures....
(Kudos to the NC Wildflower Program ~ this stretch of highway is overwhelming in its beauty!)
PS ~ I've loved many of my header photos over the years but I think this one just might take the cake for me. It's going to take me a LONG time to replace it!
