Sunflower Blue

We've been on the road the last few days having fun with friends, but we're both paying the price now.
We got home just after sunset and when I walked down to the shed to get a scoop of corn for the deer, they were already standing under the apple tree.
I couldn't tell if they were tapping their hoofs, but I got a sense that they were.
"Well, I'm glad SOMEBODY finally decided to bring us a little corn."
I acted like I didn't see them and I walked within 50 feet of where they were standing before the bolted to the edge of the garden.
They watched from a distance as I strolled up and poured the scoop of corn on the ground.
On the way back to the house, I noticed that all our sunflowers were in full bloom.
I know I shot a photo and wrote about them a few days ago, but I couldn't resist shooting another picture. I tried to turn this into an art photo.
I can promise you it will be bedtime soon.
Jilda is working tomorrow afternoon. She was scheduled to be off, but the military guys asked if she would consider teaching their class tomorrow.
She has a soft spot in her heart for these guys, and since we didn't have anything special planned, she decided to go in to teach their class.
I have several storys that I'm finishing up so I'll spend much of the day writing.
I hope you all have a remarkable holiday.
