Any crop other than wheat, barley, or legumes on the Palouse draws a bit of attention, not just from honey bees. One local farmer has planted a long strip of lovely sunflowers, not to make his fellow farmers question his sanity, but to please his daughter, for when she was a little girl she told him that one day she'd like to get married in a field of yellow sunflowers. She will be wed this summer. I can think of no sweeter action from a loving father!
