Today’s theme was easy and the first thing that came to mind was the sunflower shots I took last New Years in Sagada, Mt. Province located at the Northern Part of the Philippines.  Sagada is fast becoming a tourist destination if not for the distance and the accessibility, it would have been one of  THE tourist destination sharing the stage with Boracay and Palawan.  You’ll find my earlier Sagada posts here and here .

Sunflowers are abundant in Sagada.  Growing ubiquitously in the wild, this yellow flower adds to the charm of Sagada.  It attracts birds, bees and butterflies.  Today though in other parts of the world, it is grown for food and not just for birds.  So not only is it a sight for sore eyes, it is also an important source of food.  Sunflower oil is a healthy vegetable oil and sunflower seeds are enjoyed as a healthy snack and ingredients to many foods.  I particularly like sunflower seeds on my granola.

This week’s Photo Hunt theme is yellow, to join in the fun of photo scavenging, go here.

    Back when I was a young’un, I’d always been fascinated to read about sunflowers and how they followed the sun’s course in the sky every day. When I finally saw a real one, it was so cool, they certainly were as tall as I had imagined! Not as bright yellow as I thought, tho. But this photo of yours shows a very bright yellow one. Nice!

    Here’s my first participation in the Photo Hunt!!

    cheers,

    I did not even know that sunflowers grow in the Philippines! I am bringing seeds when I come to visit in August. I hope they grow in Cebu.

    And it is great to see blogs from the Phil.
