I was pleasantly surprised to see these sunflowers along Lockwood Ridge Rd. in Sarasota because I don't recall seeing many here in the Sunshine State. These are located next to a landscape nursery, but unfortunately, there isn't a place to safely pullover nearby. I thought about cruising by, but the combination of brilliant flowers, bright blue sky and that delightful puffy cloud was just too much to resist. The block I hoofed in heels in the 92 degree heat was worth it.
