Dandelion { Sheryl }


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
