This year, we are taking a year off from planting our sunflower field. It all had become too much and with my upcoming book taking a lot of my time, I just couldn't drive myself crazy with another obligation. Plus that ground just needs a rest from the flowers.
We had the "sunflower field" seeded to a hay mixture. It was done at the perfect time (before the drought that is happening now) and the grasses are growing and looking gorgeous.
There are some volunteer sunflowers that have popped up amongst the grasses. I went down and shot them as the sun was going down on Saturday evening.
I was done and getting into the truck when I heard a strange noise. I looked up and saw this. Whoa!
I went on a balloon chase and saw some more flying low over The Farmer's white bales of haylage.
And then one landed in front of me. Fun surprise for sure. The balloon launch was part of the Annual Green River Music Festival where the Guthrie Family celebrated Woody's 100th. Happy birthday Woody!
Stay cool everyone!
