Sunflower fields of Provence

IMG_4165IMG_4259 IMG_4188 IMG_4205 IMG_4210 IMG_4257These sunflower fields screamed out to us from afar. You can not miss them. You can’t just pass them by. You have to stop, take them in all its glory and bask in the yellow glow. You have to walk amongst them. Smell them. Touch them. Jump amongst them. Lie amongst them. Feel them. See them up close. Watch them sway in the wind. Like little human faces that call out to you. Mesmerized.

Sea of yellow

One of my absolute favourite thing in the world is a field of flowers, any flower. There’s something wild and free about a field of flowers, and I could watch them forever. Bright yellow canola fields that stretch on for miles into the horizon makes for one memorable country road drive. Definitely one of the best things I’ve seen in my life.

I want to run away into fields of flowers

The Road goes ever on and on

Down from the door where it began

Now far ahead the Road has gone

And I must follow if I can

Pursuing it with eager feet

Until it joins some larger way

Where many paths and errands meet

And wither then? I cannot say
