Flowers of the Sun

A two students offered a quick car ride to "capture a sunflower" near Montreuil Bellay, a town 30 km from here.

Stopped at nearby ruins of Chateau de l'Ebaupinay, and although signs posted in French warned "Enter at your own risk", wandered inside this 15th century structure, marveling at the solid construction of what is left after a 19th Century fire.

Third car ride John has taken in two and a half months, fifth for me.

In France; walking is good for you... M

Beautiful flowers (fleurs de'sol?). One of my favorite memories of driving across otherwise non-descript Kansas is coming over a small rise and seeing a huge field of sunflowers, with all their happy faces turned to the sun. L2
