Walking in the home area is even more of a pleasure just now because the sunflowers have made their appearance. Along with maize (corn), which is grown for cattle food, sunflowers are the main crop hereabouts. We are at too high an elevation for wine grapes (or I assume so , because we have none). If we descend two or three hundred metres the vineyards are abundant, and the sunflowers even more so.
The picture was taken by our next-door neighbour, Ang Dooley, from Australia.
