Yesterday my husband and I took a drive – we do that a lot. I just love getting into the surrounding countryside to see what I can see. I know I’m not the best photographer and my camera needs an upgrade, but I just love trying to capture what I see.
It has been a desire of mine to see a sunflower field. We tried, a month ago on a trip to Kansas, to find one. After all, the sunflower is the state flower of Kansas. But yesterday we went off into the countryside looking for a Missouri State Conservation Area that I came across on Google that shared our last name – Bryson.
We were only about thirty minutes from home and couldn’t find the area. My husband wanted to turn back but I wanted to go a little further. I love going the extra mile – the adventure of the unknown.
As we turned the bend in the road we spotted a large field full of yellow. Do I dare to hope? As we got closer this is what we saw:
We were thrilled beyond words! I wanted to go a little further and then turn around and go back and get out of the Jeep to get closer pictures…… But there was a side road up ahead (not paved) that ran along the side of the field. There was another car there already taking pictures. We pulled over and here is what I captured:
Isn’t it amazing?? We were so blessed. It got better – thanks to my adventure spirit – we kept going on the gravely dirt road. The unknown. And guess what? We found our Conservation Field:
Made our day!
