Romans 1:16 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek."
Good afternoon! Another hot day in Kansasland! However, I still managed to get in a walk early enough to get home by nine, before it was too hot! On my walk this morning I noticed sunflowers beside the trail and I thought of Nicole as she told us last week the wind blown down her sunflowers. So that thought inspired my Blog, today.
For those that don't know, Kansas is the Sunflower State. It is our state flower.
I saw these on my walk and had to photograph them. Someone must have planted them along our rail to trail. After I started thinking about it, I wondered if they were black eyed susans. I looked up online and sunfowers have bigger leaves, like in my photo and tend to be taller. These were over 6 feet tall. So, I think they are sunflowers.
Here is a photo of what are definitely sunflowers. This was from a road trip through Kansas near Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve in 2016..
And since this is supposedly a craft blog, here is a Z Fold Sunflower card, (keeping the theme). This is one of the cards I made for our Dare To Get Dirty Challenges on SplitcoastStampers earlier in the month. The papers are Stampin' Up. I used a pierced rectangle die to cut the one panel. I added a sticker flower and stamped the sentiment which is River City Rubber Works. I sure miss that company. They were right here in Wichita.
