You have Tulip Fields in April –
Lavender Fields in July –
And Sunflower Fields in September? Who knew?
I’ve loved the seeds since I was a kid. If I had a nickel in my pocket I’d stop at the store on my way home from school and buy a bag – in the shell of course. I enjoyed them all the way home, extracting the toasted seeds until my fingers and lips were shriveled by the salt – they’re still my favorite road trip snack!
But my appreciation of the flowers for their own sake has come late so I didn’t know there was a Sunflower Festival in Snohomish last weekend. And with heavy rains now upon us I thought it was too late to see them anywhere in abundance. But as luck would have it we had to go to Sequim today to purchase an E-bike (more on that in another post.) And while we were there we stopped at Purple Haze – my favorite lavender farm – and I found sunflowers everywhere tall and bright and cheerful – under mostly clear skies too!
So now I know.
Tulip Fields in April.
Lavender Fields in July.
Sunflower Fields in September.
