sunflower sighting

Driving home from playing with the cats on Saturday, I spotted this little patch of sunflowers on the highway. The last time I shot with sunflowers was summer 2011. It was so nice to get a little sun on my face and to go on a solo adventure for what felt like the first time all summer.

I love sunflowers. When I was little, the house next door to mine burnt down on Christmas Eve. I remember hearing the pop of the windows shattering because of the heat and my dad getting the step ladder from our garage and helping one of our neighbors off the roof. After the fire was put out and they tore down the house, that summer a field of sunflowers appeared in the empty lot. They've been one of my favourite flowers ever since.

Hope you guys had an awesome weekend. Happy Monday.
