I’m seeing photos of Michigan sunflower fields in my feeds, so I figured I’d reach back 7 years for one of my favorite sunflower shots! Bill got this photo of a field of sunflowers east of Vicksburg back in 2014. See moore in his massive Kalamazoo County, Michigan gallery on Flickr & have a great week!

Field, Flowers, Farm

Field of Flowers at the Farm by Robert F Carter

Field of Flowers at the Farm by Robert F Carter

“Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter.”
– Ansel Adams

Robert took this back in August of 2015. He shared this perfectly apt quotation from Ansel Adams on his profile & about this photo he writes:

While visiting a local farm market in Petoskey, Michigan, I was drawn to their crop of flowers next to their driveway. The flowers in the foreground are Bachelor’s Buttons. The road that curves through the hilly terrain can be seen near the barn in the distance.

See more in his My Petoskey gallery on Flickr & for sure check out his website.

Fighting for Food Security

Morning Sun by Richard Deming Photography

Morning Sun by Richard Deming Photography

TechCrunch has a feature on a new Google service to help the millions of Americans struggling with food insecurity:

Google today is launching a new suite of resources for people struggling with food insecurity across the U.S. The project includes the launch of a new website “Find Food Support” that connects people to food support resources, including hotlines, SNAP information, and a Google Maps locator tool that points people to their local food banks, food pantries and school meal program pickup locations, among other things.

In an announcement, Google explains how the COVID-19 pandemic fueled a worsening food crisis in the U.S., which led to some 45 million people — or 1 in 7 Americans — experiencing food insecurity at some point during 2020. That figure was up 30% over 2019, the company noted. And of those 45 million people, 15 million were children.

While the pandemic’s impacts are starting to subside as businesses are reopening and in-person activities are resuming, many children will still go hungry during the summer months when school lunch programs become unavailable.

Head over to Google to find food support & be sure to remember your neighbors struggling with food insecurity when you give charitably!

Richard took this photo back in 2010 at the Fulton Street Farm Market in Grand Rapids. See more in his Farmers Markets 2010 gallery on Flickr.

(Tiny) Home for Sale

Home for Sale! by Fire Fighter's Wife

Home for Sale! by Fire Fighter’s Wife

Like much of the rest of the country, Michigan has been seeing skyrocketing home prices.

Beth may have found a solution, but she notes that the neighbors always leave their sprinklers on, which is a little bit annoying but also a source of constant irrigation. 😂 See more in her landscape gallery on Flickr!
