One of thousands, maybe even millions, of sunflowers at Grinter Farms, in … you guessed it … Kansas (the sunflower state).
I took this photo a few weeks ago, and I’m just now getting around to posting it. This is my pet turtle Michelangelo, basking in actual sunlight for once. Do you know what kind of turtle he is?
I love how these bright yellow tulips are just reaching for the sun!
As the sun began to rise in the east yesterday morning, the moon was still setting off to the west.
(And thanks again to our veterans; yesterday, today, and every day; for your honor and bravery!)
Another reason I like this time of year … I get to see the sunrise every morning on my way to work.
We inherited this house plant almost a year ago after Jerod’s aunt’s funeral, which was about a month after our friend Ryan’s funeral, which was a few weeks after Jerod’s grandpa’s funeral, which was just 2 weeks after my aunt’s funeral. It was a rough summer to say the least. Seeing the sunlight hit this funeral plant each day reminds me of all the good days, both behind us and ahead. Relay For Life may be hard tomorrow since it’s the first Relay after my aunt passed away from pancreatic cancer, but I know the sun in shining bright.
Last night Jerod and I went for a walk to enjoy the slightly cooler than normal weather. Flowers, sun, and … bugs? Definitely signs that summer is here!
