I really like going out in the fields to pick fresh flowers. Sure, I have flowers at home in the garden, but in the fields many more and larger varieties are grown. The flowers are between food crops to keep them safe and hidden from unwelcome pickers.
You can see the small orchard fruit trees in the image below. These fields are very colorful all summer long between the cutting flowers and the fruit.
I brought home Celosia, Sunflowers and Dahlia. Dinner Plate Dahlia was available in multitudes of color. I mixed it up with color and picked the smaller Dahlia. Dark faced Sunflowers were plentiful, but the golden, light-faced were those mostly picked.
The sunflowers were featured on Garden Walk Garden Talk in the post, Study in Sunshine. The best photo of the Sunflowers there or here is in the next post on GWGT. A sunflower with a persona.
