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!
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).
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. :)
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.
