Chasing the Sun

I was lucky to capture these beauties on film Saturday morning. Morning glories are on of my all time favorite annual flowers. They look so pretty climbing up an old gear box.

I planted several different varieties. I don't remember the name of this purple flower. The colors are so vivid.

The vines are now climbing on my sunflowers! It's lovely to see. My Grandmother took pictures of her flowers. She loved to garden and wanted to share and remember her success. Grandma would pull out her photo's for all of us to see. When I was younger I never understood the draw of flower pictures. I always politely sped through the dreaded flowers! Look at me now. I never would've thought that I would be taking pictures of flowers. I bet my Grandma would be proud.

We have been chasing the sun all day today. We left for vacation and are heading west. It's amazing to see these awesome wind turbines along the interstate. This is a shot of a cool turbine near Paw Paw Illinois. I'm sure the windmills are all over the country. There is something so majestic about these huge power makers. We found ourselves mesmerized by them. I am planning on blogging from the road. That's if I can get Internet. I hope you stop by and join me on our adventure!

A trip, how fun! I can't wait to see where we'll be going and what we'll see. Love the fields of orderly plants and wind turbines...such a peaceful sight.

Your mornin' glory pictures are absolutely beautiful!

I've always loved flowers and photos of them. Thanks for sharing.

Cool picture of the wind turbines. One or two of them together is not bad, but a whole field of them creep me out. They remind me of something futuristic or alien. They spin so effortlessly for their size that it throws off my senses somehow.

I love morning glories, too! One year they practically took over our entire deck. LOL. Wind turbines are especially impressive when you drive through a field of hundreds of them!
