Sunflowers at the Arboretum

It is a muggy, rainy day in the Chicago area. It seems that a picture of sunflowers might help the mood.

Actually, the rain will be good for the raspberry patch. We are going to have a good second crop.

For those of you looking for library information, I will add that the Morton Arboretum in Lisle, Illinois has a great library. If you ever get a chance to take a library tour, do so. The director is very entertaining and the rare items are pretty stupendous.

With the bright yellow color and the brown center wide enough to imagine a smiley face, sunflowers always make my day. Rows of it also evoke memories of days at the farm where sunflowers grow along white picket fences.
