In southern Oregon the smoke from wildfires has been so thick it has almost obscured everything, but yesterday changing wind patterns gave a tiny bit more visibility -

Enough to almost see the Sunflower field I was riding next to. So I stopped and looked and could actually almost see a few bedraggled sunflowers poking their tiny faces through the haze.

And grinning at me.

I grinned back.

There is something about sunflowers that makes you want to look at them, out of the corner of your eye, to see if they are looking back.
