Every year I wait for July with excitement…knowing exactly what is coming. The sunflower fields bloom and all you can see is yellow for what seems like miles upon miles. I’ve gone for the last three years and taken family photo session in the sunflower fields and each year I’ve had more fun (and, maybe more sweat?) than the last. This year the heat was intense and the rain was scarce so the poor sunflowers didn’t make it as long as they have before. While that makes me sad, I still enjoyed the few visits I got in during that week!
