Our final flower of the year….

As fall is upon us, and winter is approaching, most everything here is in the process of dying. However, we looked out our window the other day and noticed a huge bloom on one of our rose bushes, along with a smaller bud. We were quite surprised, as we had a freeze just last week, and another last night. I figured I had better get out and take the picture before it disappeared, so I did. Taken not 30 minutes ago, here is one fresh off the memory card. Enjoy!

Since I’m from Kansas…..

Since I’m from Kansas, I figured it would be most fitting for me to start out with a picture of sunflowers. My wife and I were returning home from her birthday weekend in the city, and we passed a humongous field full of sunflowers. The sun was out in full force, and the heads of the sunflowers were quite breathtaking. I had to stop and take some pictures. This is one that came out from the many I took. Enjoy!!!
