You can tell it is almost officially fall. The farm season does not always follow the calendar though. We know it is fall because the sunflower heads are in the market…at the park, coming down the street in a three wheeler. Those giant heads full of seeds are everywhere. The love gals pluck the seeds out and enjoy the fun of it! They crack open the shells and spit them out and eat. Snack food at the park, while watching a movie. This is nothing like the sack my son insisted on having for every baseball game. (I never quite got that.) And Love Bug likes them too. I could never convince her to select the bag of shelled seeds.
See the lady on the three wheeler coming up behind us. After the picture I turned and pointed, “Look sunflowers!”
She saw me and quickly maneuvered through the traffic.
Love Bug looked and selected one. Her cart was a feast of colors and textures.
It must have been a bountiful harvest.
The eating patterning was well thought out.
No random plucking.
Yes, fall is here!
Hope you are enjoying the special things of fall? What are those unique things done in your area that you love about fall?
