New Header

I went for a cruise through the countryside today. I'm working on collecting pictures for a theme that you will see later. I can just hear the anticipation building, but be patient. I'm going to Oklahoma this weekend, so it may be a while. I'm home now with 90+ pictures. Many of my hands and fingers because I saw things while I was driving and couldn't stop. I was suprised to see this field of sunflowers in bloom. I think it's kind of early, but now I'll have to pay more attention to see if other fields are blooming. I drove 80 miles in four hours and most of it was dirt roads. It's been a fun day.

These air planes are bonus pictures. I wasn't looking for them, but happened to see two in the same day. The yellow one is a spray plane, but I'm not sure about the other. It flew low over me while I was standing in the back of the pickup taking pictures for Friday My Town Shoot Out. Bear in mind, my brother-in-law told me that it costs $50.00 per acre to spray his corn for bugs. This is costing someone some serious $$$.

I was disappointed that I didn't see any blooming sunflowers on my trip to and from North Dakota. It is fun to see how they turn to face the sun throughout the day.

The photo of the sunflowers is beautiful. Makes me miss "the sunflower state!"

Forgot to say I used to really enjoy watching the spray planes at work when I was growing up in KS. Those guys did some amazing flying! Now that I understand the dangers of pesticides better than I did when I was a kid, I wouldn't stop to watch them like I used to.
