images from the land of corn & soybeans
Sunflowers have been called the perfect symbol of the Midwest because they are always bowing their heads to the East (NEW YAWK CITY). L and I drove across Kansas once during sunflower time. There are miles and miles of the things, and they are impressive in their prime.
I love sunflowers. In nothern Italy they have fields and fields of sunflowers and the face of the flower seems to follow the sun during the day, all flowers in a field turned the same way, facing said sun.Hope you are getting some relief today in Northern Illinois.
YES ....it's raining, a nice steady rain. It feels like heaven and we went outside awhile ago and walked around getting soaked. Unfortunately some of the corn fields I saw this morning appeared to be beyond all hope - brown and crispy around the edges.
