Kansas Sunflowers

Toto, I have a feeling were not... oh, nevermind.

And all this time I thought everything in Kansas was in black and white. “Unlike the small native sunflower which grows wild in Kansas, these large sunflowers are grown by farmers as a crop. Large fields of the golden flowers are visible in the summer and early fall.”  You think that’s weird? In my hometown, they grow dandelions as a food crop.

    I gasped when this photo came up. How extraordinary. This postcard picture just fills my eyes….thank you so much for sharing this little beauty.

  2. I’ve lived in and traveled around Kansas most of my life and have *never* *ever* seen a field of sunflowers, let alone one this large. Wheat, yes – sunflowers, no. Can we say “Photoshop”? btw, everything here isn’t b&w. Sometimes, with enough rain, things turn green for about 10 minutes. lol!

      I grew up in Wellington, KS, and the fields surrounding town were always planted with wheat, alfalfa, or sunflowers. What part of the state are you in?

    What a lovely site! I stumbled here while looking for pictures of vintage Kansas postcards. I grew up in a small farming town that was surrounded by wheat fields and sunflower fields.

    Thank you for sharing your post card collection. I’m glad I stumbled by!
