One sure sign that summer is in full swing is when the sunflowers bloom. They are really starting to open up now. If you missed my last post on the sunflowers, you can click below to read it. These pictures were taken one week after the previous ones. You can see how much the heads have opened.

Previous Post: Sunflowers

Enjoy these photos that were shot on Friday during my morning walk with my neighbor. This sunflower field is between our houses. I really enjoy being able to see them every day.


I see you there in glory shining bright,
Following the sun and its path of light.
Standing tall above all others in the field,
You grow, conquer, and do not yield

The little birds take great delight
In playing round you, from day to night.
With your petals of yellow and leaves of green
How very easily you are seen.

But there is more to you than first sight,
More than beauty and grander to delight.
Every beautiful aspect that appears,
Gives praise to the Father dear.

He made you a part of creation,
And you praise him in glorious celebration!
The beauty that within you is expressed,
Gives testimony to his greatness.

Sunflower, how I long to be like you!
Glorifying God in all I do.
Following the Son and His path of light,
To worship Him in His glory shining bright.

I can learn from you, my friend,
With every breath, praise to God, I might send.
With all of his creation telling the story,
Might I, with you, proclaim His glory.

The crop dusters are always fun to watch.
I'm sure they were spraying for grasshoppers!

That's our place in the background.
