The weather has been gray and wet today. In fact, rain is predicted for the next week or so here in the south. I was looking through some pictures and came across these shots of the sunflowers taken at the Sunflower Festival this year. Their happy faces bring sunshine no matter what the weather is outside.
We stopped next to a field where alphalfa was being cut and baled. What a wonderful aroma. The smell of freshly cut hay has a clean wholesome smell that nothing else compares to. Summer 2009 was a good one, but I am ready for fall with cooler days and bright fall colors.
