Sunflower Festival and Today’s Lunch

August 30, 2011 at 11:49 am 2 comments

Sunflowers are such bright happy flowers, don’t you think? Not to mention the seeds are super yummy too.

Did you know, however, that there are over 80 different species of sunflowers? I sure didn’t.

There was a sunflower festival being held in a nearby town last weekend, so Hisa and I went to go check it out. I’ve never seen so many sunflowers in my life! It was beautiful!

Sunflowers, sunflowers, everywhere!

I forget what this particular type of sunflower is called, but they seem to be the more common type in Japan (disclaimer: I could be completely wrong about this. I’ve only seen this type of sunflower more than the typical American sunflower, so I assume it’s more common. If I’m wrong, don’t hurt me).

Next to the field of sunflowers, there was a huge field of cosmos flowers…and someone’s house (perhaps the person who owns the fields?).


Hisa posed like he was smelling the flower, but I wanted him to look at the camera, so now it looks like the flower in giving him a kiss on the cheek. Awww~!

If you paid, you could actually go out and cut a bunch of sunflowers to take home with you, but Hisa and I were content to just walk around and admire all the flowers. It was fun. đŸ™‚

Okay, now for today’s lunch!

Egg salad sandwich on my homemade bread, asparagus spears with a spicy mayo dipping sauce, and one of my homemade granola bars.
