Sunflowers (Not by Vincent)

Good Afternoon J-land,  The Sunflowers in the first two pictures are the first time I have seen Sunflowers growing in a field in Scotland.  They are beautiful, the photos don't do them justice.   We usually get great pictures on Eurosport when hubby is watching The Tour De France the fields of Sunflowers are spectacular.  The farmer here has planted them among the cereal crop I was impressed.  The other two photos are of the Falkland Hills which are where we stay and I love to see the 'Dougals' as we call them (hay bales). Had a wee run round our local patch this morning and had coffee in a local coaching inn, its been there  since 1557.   Nothing planned for the rest of the weekend we usually wait till Monday when things are a lot quieter.  Hope you have a good weekend.  Bye Bye

I love sunflowers. We have one solitary one that has sprung up in one of our planters from a seed one of the birds dropped. Every year I intend to plant some but never get around to it yet we always have a sack of sunflowers seeds for the birds. I love those great fields of them you see in France.

I didn't know that sunflowers grew in fields like that, just beautiful :o)
I love hay bales too, reminds me of playing in haystacks as a child on my Uncles farm... happy sigh!

Lovely sunflower pics. I remember having competitions as a little one seeing who could grow the tallest sunflower. Ahhh, memories.
How nice to see them growing in a field like that.
I hope your pictures don't do any more disappearing acts on you, how annoying that must have been.
