August now we missed July.....

August 2019, Well we have already started our eight month and now it's really flying this year its going too fast. I have been missing a month or so because of other commitments and family bereavement of losing my Dad so I decided to take a break. I don't think that I will be posting everyday unless I see something really good. A few people have said they miss seeing the daily photos so I will try my best to keep it going, Thanks again for the comments and likes

Beautiful Sunflower Field. 
I stumbled on this beautiful sunflower field in Yorkshire on Wednesday. This is the first time I have ever seen a full field of Sunflowers and what a sight it was, I'm posting two photos for it it was so pretty. I think you will agree how lovely they look and I was astounded how beautiful they are. I never thought they grew them in this country.
