My daughter Hannah and I went to visit the sunflower farm in Newbury
It was crazy hot and we couldn't handle the oppressive heat for very long
We picnicked on fresh potato bread and chicken sandwiches,
home made icebox pickles and iced tea
while sitting in the car with the air conditioner running.
Of an evening we went to the town bonfire on short beach
to celebrate the end of summer with s'mores!
We went to visit a friend and played a game of backyard football
then jumped into the pool!
mums are in the local market places
and I brought home a bunch of cheery yellow for the sunny table in the dining room
This is the second season we've visited the sunflower farm. Last year the flowers were bigger and taller.
We think that they didn't have enough rain this year.
It was nice to be able to get a picture of the field and the sky. Last year they were too tall
for me to do that.
I end up with all sorts of broken sea shells
i love being able to see the wabi-sabi
in their little spiral homes

I LOVE sunflowers!! and I have GOT to get some mums for my deck! Love the sea shell photo......your daughter is pretty! Yay for backyard fun and beach time :) Enjoy this last week of summer!ReplyDelete
Must be an amazing sight with all the sunflowers.ReplyDelete
Someday I hope to visit a sunflower farm. They are such optimistic and sturdy plants. I loved the last photo of the flowers saluting the sun. Sorry that the weather was oppressive. Good call on having the picnic (such a yummy menu) in the air conditioned car.ReplyDelete
A town bonfire . . . on a beach . . . with s'mores as a group activity? Sounds divine. I really NEED to see if there is a job opening in your area. ;) The only s'mores i had this summer were with with apples, marshmallows and chocolate. Surprisingly tasty. And the lack of what was better for my body.
I saw a sunflower field for the first time ever on our road trip last weekend. They are so lovely! I got a container of three different coloured moms for my front porch to hold my scarecrow. S'mores and bonfires on the beach sound wonderful!ReplyDelete
Beautiful sunflower shots! I really like the next to last photo, with the yellow sunflowers set against the blue sky.ReplyDelete
Beautiful flowers-- both the mums and the sunflowers. They're so cheerful. Instead of orange being the 'color' of autumn, I think it should be yellow.ReplyDelete
Any time on the beach is time well spent. S'mores just add sweetness.
A lovely portrait of your daughter amongst the flowers. Great shots.ReplyDelete
