sunflowers, sauvie island

September 23, 2012


Lee and I made our annual trek over to Sauvie Island today, to hike around a bit, soak up the fall atmosphere, and to grab the first pumpkins of autumn. We ended up, as we always do, at Kruger Farms, which is a lovely farm stand stocked with local veggies, pick your own flowers (like these sunflowers), a beer truck (Guided by Porches brewery), and good grub. (The farm stand is across the street from this inlet, which I photographed in January.)

The bad news was that it was too early for the corn maze, but I’ll take that over the crowds that will descend upon this poor island starting next week.

    Beautiful photo. I’m from Kansas where the sunflower is the state flower, but I’ve seen beautiful sunflowers elsewhere.

    Such a warm image…..makes me think that the cool days we’re starting to have aren’t really happening. Beautiful.
