Day 2: Unexpected Sunflowers

Kansas is sometimes known as the Sunflower State.  There are parts of Kansas that are completely covered by sunflower fields as far as the eye can see.  The Sunflower is the official state flower, and is just one of the many wildflowers that grow with abandon in Kansas.

What always catches me off guard, however, are the unexpected sunflowers. The ones that spring up by the side of the road or in the middle of fields without being planted.  They are beautiful, and rich colored and appear in late summer in the most unexpected places.
