|"We're all buckled in and ready to go!"|
"Yeah. Let's get the show on the road!"
We saw lots and lots of wildflowers on our journey! They were all so beautiful - we thought they'd be perfect for Serene Scenery Sunday!
There were fields dotted with this tiny beauty ...
... and long spikes of these:

The colors were so rich and the cloud-cover and recent storms in the area made them appear super saturated!
When we got to Quivira NWR, we saw Sunflowers everywhere!
|Sunflowers lining the road into the Refuge|
This flower so delicate and looks like crinkled crepe paper - but beware of those thorny stems!
These sunflowers have a nice view of the Big Salt Marsh:

Even though there are no visible wildflowers in this next shot, we thought we'd include it. This is one of the Egrets/Herons fishing holes, taken with Mom's iPhone!

(Egrets are in the Heron family, so they share the clubhouse.)
Moving right along ...
Mom took these shots on the way out of the refuge:
Sunflowers, another yellow wildflower, barbed wire, a dirt road ... how much more Kansas-y can you get?!? How about if we toss some sorghum into the scene? Look on the other side of the road:
It was such a fun trip, but very exhausting! I was going to suggest Maggie and I play License Plate Bingo on the way home, but we did this instead:
|"Let's just nap, Mags."|
"One step ahead of you, Camzzzz...."
It was such a fun day! We hope our photos brought you some serenity!
