Sunflowers and Visitors

We escaped the frost so the sunflowers will continue. Depending upon how you feel about them, it's either good or bad. I've just heard it will be 90 degrees on Saturday so it sounds like I have at least a week more picking. Another week of making homes more beautiful.... There are some plants which are just starting to bloom so late in the season but that's good. Some of the plants are looking mighty tired.

So how about this? Someone took me up on my invitation to visit the Sunflower Field. Marcy, aka Marcy Habetrot, met Julia and I this afternoon for a tour of the sunflower field and a visit. How fun. Marcy carried the flowers while I picked. And we talked and talked….. Thanks so much Marcy for coming to our funny little world! See you at Fibertwist! After Marcy left, a young woman and her daughter and Mom came by. She looked oddly familiar. Yes, she was a knitter and yes, I probably had met her before.

Sunflowers and knitting - bringing the world together!

Sounds like a wonderful afternoon! I'd hang with Marcy anywhere, but a field of sunflowers must have been special!

If anyone is nearby, you really should go see Kristen and Julia's sunflower field. With the monarch butterflies, goldfinches, and honeybees populating the rows and rows of flowers, it's like something straight out of the Wizard of Oz. Thanks, K!

This is just one more thing to reinterate the idea that EVERYTHING is related to knitting.
I'm awfully jealous of Marcy.
