What is it about Sunflowers that make them
a must have bunch for some women.
I have regular sunflower customers.
Some admit picking them
from the wild plants on the sides of the road.
I give them the tip of longevity in the vase, slicing up the stem
this allows the flower to drink enough water.
Shasta daisy has a similar flower but
does not have the same attraction or reaction.
Still blooming are my Cornflowers.
Planted very late in the season. I must get them in earlier next year
Lime green Zinnias
These Cosmos are as tall as me!
Some of the plants flowered just after I planted them.
These have held off till Autumn.
I wonder if they will be orange like the others?
In the studio I have been making buttons
They are fiddly but the result is bright and shiny
To give you an idea of the size of the buttons,
I lined them up with some coins
I will have to make a garment that needs buttons!
Planning to sell them in sets of six or should it just be pairs?
I think they would make great shirt buttons.
I wonder if anyone would be interested in hand made buttons?
