Sunflowers

I spent two weeks in Bulgaria with Stella Canfield. Every day we drove, we passed by fields of green; they were sunflowers. Sunflowers are one of the biggest cash crops in Bulgaria, they are used to make sunflower oil. But the flowers weren’t open. As our two weeks flew to a close, I feared they would not open before we left. Finally, the day before we left Provadia, we witnessed the most incredible sight. Sunflowers, open, all facing the east. The fields were so big, they reached the horizon. Fields of yellow stretching towards the sky. Truly a beautiful sight.
