If you re planning a drive across Kansas, I recommend traveling in late summer. During the month of June, the wheat is waving gently in the early summer breeze creating a majestic golden wave along nearly every highway. This view is reminiscent of lyrics from patriotic songs and is but an introduction to the stunning beauty and grace of the fields of sunflowers in August and September. It s not uncommon for cars to stop alongside the Kansas byways to take pictures of the rows of vibrant 6-foot blooms. I m a homegrown Kansas girl that proudly welcomes ones arrival to our country home with an old windmill painted to resemble a giant sunflower at the end of our lane. We plant sunflowers along the hedgerows to cut for bouquets and dry the heads to create wreaths. Sunflowers come in all shapes and sizes and many different colors. I love them all. I especially love mixing them with other native plants and grasses for a unique, long-lasting arrangement. I hope you enjoy my medley of sunflower prints with nature-inspired motifs for a delightful fabric collection echoing from the Kansas prairie.
