Van Gogh moments

Their French name is tournesol--and right now is peak sunflower season. 
The narrow road between Léran and the main highway from Lavelanet to Mirepoix is lined with shockingly yellow rows of flowers, a huge massed chorus all turned towards the sun. The occasional seed from last summer was left behind and, in fields left fallow this year, small sunflowers sprout here and there looking rather lost and pathetic.
