Monday Mood: The Sunny Sunflowers

We chanced upon some sunflowers growing in the wild on the road side. My mother-in-law made a bouquet with a bunch of other wild flowers. It’s so pretty.

We have just arrived in France this weekend. On the road from Toulouse to my in-laws’ place, we were greeted by the smiliest, sunniest blooms of rows and never-ending rows of sunflowers. Scroll down for your viewing pleasure…

Clouds and sunflowers — some of my favorite things

I just couldn’t help but feel cheerful despite having a nasty migraine and jetlag all the while during the drive. I have never seen so many sunflower fields in France before. It made me feel a bit as if we were back on our Tuscany road trip from two years ago.

I posted some pics of the sunflower fields on instagram and one of my friends asked me if I could bring some back home. I never thought about it before, but I just might be able to do it by drying some. Fortunately, there are a lot of helpful instructions on the internet and just yesterday, on our way to a farm, we found some growing wild on the road side.

Now I have three sunflowers hanging upside down in our bedroom. Let’s wait and see if they dry up nicely. I will have them framed and walled up when we return to Singapore.

Thanks for reading and have a great flowerful week ahead! 🙂
