Another trip to the Farmers' Market before art class ... today nothing edible .... I was on the hunt for SUNFLOWERS and the first vendor I have purchased from before had NONE .... but a new vender ... the first time for them had what I was looking for... beautiful SUNFLOWERS. A nice variety of sizes and colors, they aren't just yellow any more you know? They were very eager to have a paying customer and told me about the way they were grown and I could tell they were dedicated to the organic way of growing and harvesting the items. I smiled and told them these lovely ladies were going to be the subject for my art class today and they looked puzzled at first but after it sunk in they were interested in what I was telling them. We talked about gourds that he might have to sell next week .... mmmmmm ... what can I do with more gourds?
