Summer is drawing to a close. The neighborhood kids went back to school today. I am dreaming of Autumn, my favorite time of year. Bring me the pumpkins, the acorns, the crisp nights, football, craft shows, colorful mums, Halloween -- I love it all. We are not quite there yet, however. I don't decorate for fall until after Sept. 1st.
One thing always makes me smile in August. Beautiful sunflowers. They are like happy faces warming themselves in the sun. When I was driving to the Shaker Woods Crafts Festival in Columbiana, Ohio last year, I came upon a number of sunflower farms with hundreds of acres of gorgeous sunflowers. Here are some photos to make you smile.
The Happy Triplets!
Check out the Bees.
