Sunflowers found…   Leave a comment

After the trip to Fort Vancouver in search of sunflowers I gave in and found out where Beth’s friend had found them and it turns out it’s not too far from home. On the corner of 156th and 92nd Avenue, Vancouver, is a terrific little vegetable stand run by Betty A. and her son Duane. Betty is a delightful lady who obviously loves growing top quality farm produce. While I was busy with the sunflowers (which were rapidly fading, being a week or more past their prime) Beth was perusing the offerings of fresh vegetables. For lunch today we had, without a doubt, the best sweet corn we’ve had since arriving in the NW some 20 years ago. Betty also gave me free run of her sunflower patch for photographs. As it turns out the entire patch this year is made up of volunteers. We also ended up with some sunflower heads for my backyard bird photography. More photos available at NorwoodPhotos.
