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! 🙂
