Some Blogs that I follow

The state flower for Kansas is the 
Sunflower
I did a little research about them. 
Reminds me of the report I did on coffee from South America back in 5th grade!

I may of been through a small area of Kansas at one time in my life.
In 1971 the main sales territory for sunflowers were:
Kansas
Texas
Oklahoma
Colorado
Missouri
South Dakota
Nebraska

The florets in spirals draw my attention every time.
Colors, shades, forms...

Do you think the Kansas bloggers will give me a lesson on the flower that I adore?
Something else you must know about me.

I break for sunflowers, if it is safe and possible to do so.

You gotta love someone who brakes for sunflowers - when it's safe!

That is a beautiful Sunflower. The colors here are spectacular. I am sure they would give you a lesson. Perhaps they would also ask to have this photo of their state flower that you've captured so well.

Dear Janie, I thoroughly enjoyed looking at your photography. You are very talented at what you do. I do think though that I definitely would be afraid of Barbara!
Thank you for being my newest follower. I hope that you visit again soon. I look forward to it. I am a follower of your blog too. Blessings for a beautiful day, Catherine xo

OMG, that's a beauty. I share your love affair with the sunflower!! I just started trying to watercolor last year and I have done two sunflowers. LOVE them both... mostly because of the subject!! This photo is stunning!

I'll be watching for that knitting project! ;)
