The other day, I drove past this beautiful field of Sunflowers in a sunny field in the country near Athens, Alabama. Love!!!
What southerner doesn’t love sunflowers? I surely do!
There was a sign that said something like: You pick–Saturdays mornings!
The field was near Isom’s Orchard, one of my favorite roadside farmer’s market that is known for their delicious peaches, apples, etc.
I met one of the Isom ladies, who is nice as she can be. All of those Isoms are super-nice.
What do you think of the sunflowers that I picked for Sweetgum House? I love comments! 🙂
Note: I paid $1/stem for the sunflowers, which won’t growing much longer. You may recall that my Papa Lindsey and then my parents owned a little store in rural south Alabama…So I love promoting local businesses such as Isom’s, Lowe Mill, Funky Monkey,
University Pickers…all of those people! They’re cut from the same cloth as my Lindsey clan! 😉 Not to mention, I love writing about them!
