I thought I'd splatter a bit - always fun after a stressful day -- and these sunflowers 'appeared' in the wet paint. We have several in bloom right now in the children's garden. They're early for the season, but since we planted them in the greenhouse, we were able to encourage their flowering in time for the plant sale several weeks ago. I'm hoping the fields that were planted in these beauties last year, will once again sport their bright faces.

It's meeting upon meeting today and harvesting more food for the hungry. Temps are high - just like the humidity -- and we are still in need of more rain ...I know my plants at home will be looking for me and the water hose!

Have a great day!
