Sunflowers in the Wind

 
Actually, the thing that brought the biggest smile to my face today has no pictures, so I'll just tell you about that first. I stopped for a few minutes at a friend's house, and he has a big Old English Sheep Dog named Cunningham. I got a major dog fix with kisses and wiggles and happy dog looks. It made me happy all afternoon, whenever I thought about it.

However, these also made me smile. Jerusalem Artichoke, Sunchoke, Helianthus tuberosus. Just a lovely patch of them, dancing in the breeze. Enjoy.

Dogs always brighten up my days. Mostly my dog, but even other people's dogs.

I love those dogs! You don't see them much anymore. :(

Ratty- It's amazing. I didn't quite understand how much I miss a dog

Hi Gnome- I love the bright color

Chuck- I haven't tried them. Never found a place and time that seemed OK to dig them

Ann- yes, indeed!

Lin- I haven't seen one in a long time

Great shot with the bee and, of course, yellow flowers are my favorites.

How nice to get warm fuzzies from the pooch. I know you must always be missing Maggie.

This would be a good time right now. I think you would like the texture and the flavor.
