The sunflowers are a reason why I love July. The fields of them in nearby Maryland could never come close to the ones in the south of France, but they're all I've got to enjoy. So, along with Charlie, and a good friend, I made my annual pilgrimage to see them last week.
Again, as I said, they don't compare to the fields in France, but they do not disappoint.
After all, how can you not smile when you see something like this?
Or even this....
They are such a beautiful and bountiful display of bright, cheery, yellow!
It was a nice morning and by 10 o'clock, we returned home. Back in June another friend surprised me with a thoughtful birthday gift of aerial pictures taken in May, of the place we call home. I thought I'd share them with you. Amazing what can be done with a drone these days. The picture below is the front of our property.
The next photo is of the back of our house with our fenced yards in view - You can see that Todd has plenty of room to run.
Todd also has plenty of places to lay in the shade too.
