Along with lavender, you can find fields of sunflowers in Provence too. On the way to Valensole, we stopped at a sunflower field to take photos but it didn’t turn out to be a good field. It was really on its way out, with heavy flower heads dropping over, many without petals but the kids were fascinated with the seeds inside.


They hadn’t seen sunflowers in fields before. They took some seeds to see if they can grow their own next year.


I had to search to find any sunflowers to photograph. Still a thrill to be driving along and see a field of these flowers blooming.
