This is the progression of my little ‘crop’ one summer. I planted some birdseed, to get the grain, and some sunflower seeds, to get the pretty flowers.

This year I tried planting some more sunflower seeds from the birdseed package, but they didn’t come up. I know I have some other seeds around here somewhere, but I can’t find them!

Happy Sunflower Day! 🌻🌻🌻

Photo is of a worn brown cowboy boot. It has a red bandana tied around it, and a bouquet of sunflowers poking out of the top of the boot.

These were table decorations at a yearly event my dad and I would always attend. It was called the Mayor’s Cornbread & Beans Lunch, and all proceeds from tickets went to the support of our local Hospice.

The food was good, and there was live music from different bands and singers. The mayors from all the towns around here were there, along with local celebrities. They would mingle and talk with everyone at the tables. There was also drawings for door prizes.

One big yellow and black sunflower with green leaves.

This one is in what looks like a glass canning jar for a vase.

Do you need something bright and sunny today? I do, because it’s been gray, rainy, and gloomy the past few days.

I see a lot of times they fix up a little bouquet made up of candies! They’re not flowers, but they are pretty cute.

Flower of the Day – Sunflowers & Boots

This one is a table decoration. Every spring the Hospice organization promotes a cornbread & beans luncheon to raise money for all the good work they do. My dad and I always went, and they had these sunflowers in boots on all the tables. There was  lots of good food, live musical entertainment, door prizes, and meet the mayors of all the surrounding towns. It was kind of a come eat, and go affair, but we always stayed the whole time, because we enjoyed it so much.

One Word Photo Challenge: Crop

This is the progression of my little ‘crop’ of the summer. I planted some birdseed, to get the grain, and some sunflower seeds, to get the pretty flowers. A few are still blooming out there.

Thinking of the word crop, for this challenge, several other things came to mind.

  1. Crop circles … I’d like to see these in person. I think aliens do them all over the world. Such intricate patterns! Maybe they have some secret meaning?
  2. Crop duster airplanes … We’ve seen these a lot around here, spraying the crops. The planes are fun to watch, swooping really low to the ground. Once, we had a dog who would run up and down the back yard fence, barking at the planes. We lived right by a couple of cotton fields. It was funny to watch him, thinking he’d catch the plane or something.
  3. I’ve been to a ‘cropping party’ for scrapbooking. A group of ladies get together, bring their photos, and other scrapbook supplies, and make a party of it. There’s usually refreshments.
  4. An old saying I’ve always heard is, ‘come a cropper’. Now, I always thought it meant the farmers had a good and profitable crop that year. Turns out I was wrong. I looked up the definition of the saying, and it means to fall headlong from a horse, or to suffer some misfortune. Now I know! 🙂
