This week I have been with Terry in a place called "Tekirdag" (English spelling). So, I thought I should get my picture here this week. Well, I haven't found anything except a marigold that even remotely comes close to the color. I did explore my files and I found these sunflowers that I took HERE during the summer. Until that trip, I didn't know that Turkey was such a big supplier of the sunflowers seeds we eat and the sunflower oil we use. Fields that look like this were everywhere. A month later when we came to this area, these beautiful blooms were all brown and drooping. They looked so sad and unhappy. Then I realized, "Of course, they have to go to seed . . ." (Yes, that was really what I thought!) The harvesting is done mostly like corn in the United States. Large trailers are filled with the spent heads and taken off to the market.
Thanks for stopping by -- I enjoy your comments and read them all! Love, Love, Sheryl
