I was heading home from the city just east of us (that I rarely visit) when I saw them.
They were on the other side of the highway so I hadn't noticed them at first.
I think every single one of us can say that we love sunflowers, am I right?
But when there's a whole field of them, well, that's just a glorious treat for the eyes.
Once I discovered how to access the field I went back, cameras in tow.
I stepped further and further into the maize of golden beauties until that's all I could see.
I snapped and then snapped some more...
I was all alone, lost in a world where nothing but the sky and sunflowers existed.
We can't forget about the bees.
And it was at that moment when I felt the first drop...
...it had started to rain.....oh great!
I knew I had to make a mad dash for it if I didn't want soggy cameras.
My car was............right o--ver...........th-th-ere....s-s-somewhere...
...where was my car, anyway??
Standing on my tippy toes, I was finally able to see my car in the distance.
Had I really waded out that far in this delicious sea of yellowness? (is that even a word?)
So as fast as my short little legs could take me,
I made it to my car, just seconds before the bottom dropped out of the sky.
I had gotten what I came for.
And I was happy.
