Inspired by the Sunflower
Saturday mornings in Havre de Grace, there was a lovely but modest Farmer's Market, complete with a view of the Chesapeake Bay. My favorite little stand was always stacked with lush scarlet tomatoes; day-glow-green herbs of dill, oregano, parsley and cilantro perfuming the air; yellow-orange-red-green peppers; fresh onions, red and yellow; and baskets-full of sun bursting corn. Truth be told, even better than all that delicious fresh food for the body were the fragrant newly cut bouquets of flowers, for the soul. I could never leave the Harmer Family Stand with out an armful of flowers; the Sunflowers beguiled me to paint their portraits.
Did I mention how much I miss it all?
Today a posting without words, just enjoy! May the sunny flowers put a smile on your face and leave a golden place in your heart.
