Chris and I checked out a new sunflower patch this week.
He read about it in the paper and we went on a Thursday instead of on the weekend. It's south of Lawrence, off 59 highway. Turn like you are going to Well's Overlook and follow the sign. (923 East 1450 Road is the address.)
It was glorious. We had the whole place to ourselves.
We took advantage of it, wandering in and out among the plants. Examining them from every possible angle. Looking at the cows in the field off in the distance.
Right as we were getting ready to leave, I spotted this.
Run Forest run! I hope you get to a sunflower patch this season. With, or without, a smiley face in the middle of the field. There is something very special about them.
