Often, when you set off on an adventure, you don't know what you are going to find ....

You may turn a corner and be almost blinded by the sun shining on a whole field of sunflowers

You may stand at the edge of the road and just breathe and breathe and breathe in the sunshine, ignoring the neighboring dog who would like to have you for breakfast ....

And then you may pull yourself away from the splendor .... turn another corner and find a new friend

a whole new type of sunshine ....

Awwwwwwwww .....

Goodbye, Sweet Goat ....  thank you for adding sunshine to my day

“Just because an animal is large, it doesn't mean he doesn't want kindness; however big Tigger seems to be, remember that he wants as much kindness as Roo.”
(A.A. Milne)

Did you find a touch of sunshine this weekend?   I would love to hear about it ....

Wishing you a sunshiny week (although we really, really need rain on the outside, we can always use sunshine within)

wow Frances!
i have never seen so many sunflowers in one place ....magnificant!
i have heard that they follow the sun until they mature at which time they remain facing east??
i love how you've captured each stage of growth....magnificent! and they look like they're growing in sand....hmmmm!!
did you see the little birds on the wires and atop the trees?
such an adorable little goat too......would bring a smile to anyones face!!
