Sunflower Patch

Sunflower Patch

I found this full sunflower patch just north of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. What was strange was that it was later in the summer season and the field should have been harvested but had not been for some reason.

According to the internet, “Sunflower harvesting has a long history as an American tradition and they have been part of man’s diet for centuries. Native Americans were harvesting sunflower seeds long before Europeans arrived. They boiled the heads to extract the oil and ate the seeds either raw or baked in breads and infusions were used medicinally. The seeds are a good source of calcium, phosphorus and potassium.”

Green Grapes

Green Grapes

These green grapes were growing under a canopy of wood trellises. This photograph is in memory of my Dad and his ability to grow any plants, indoors and outdoors. He had a trellis in our back yard that grew wonderful grapes. The great thing about grapes other than raisins is that they also produce wine.

Sunflowers in the Winter Sun

Sunflowers In The Winter Sun

In this photo, the winter sun is starting to set in the West. With heads bowed, the sunflowers are saying good-bye to the retreating day of sun. I love the combination of the shadows drawn out in curves on the snow and the tree branches framing the photograph. Thanks for liking, commenting, sharing and purchasing.

Beam of Light

Beam of Light

Beam Of Light

In this photograph, the winter sunlight blazons through the sky and passes through the sunflowers as if touching and kissing them good-bye before the sun sets. I love this black and white photo because it looks like it was painted in an artistic fashion and yet it is a photograph.
