Prairie Sunflowers Along Prairie Roads

One treat of summer is finding roads lined with prairie sunflowers — on the shoulders, in the ditches, at the edges of the fields.

A few days ago, I drove along a Saskatchewan township road that began with scattered yellow, blue and pink wildflowers and then after cresting a slight rise, became lined with bright yellow prairie sunflowers. 

Not high; no tunnel. These annuals grow only one to three feet tall. Simply a glow on every side.

Summer is here.
