A giant field of gorgeous sunflowers and zinnias
greeting customers as they arrive to shop for local produce.
A delightful way to start the morning.
I have been teaching preschool for over thirty years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about.
I am highlighted in the the new edition of Jim Trelease's bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at both the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, and the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital.
How beautiful. Thank you.
I’m glad you enjoyed it!
Yes, yes, yes! There is a yard in my neighborhood with a similar profusion of zinnias and sunflowers. These wonderful flower-beings — and the bees, butterflies and birds they attract — are such a tonic for our souls!!!
I love your description and beautiful words, Will. They were certainly a tonic for the soul!
wow! Jennie, I doubt I’d go any further – just stay and admire this incredible colourful border! 😀
I did just that for the longest time, Annika. What a treat! 😀
Yes!! It was hard to pull myself away. 😀
I love the colours.
They’re the best, aren’t they?
So beautiful, what a wonderful welcome.
It was! Thank you.
Amazing to be welcomed by blooming flowers of all sorts and colours. They know how to inviting people, and bring them a good mood. Thank you for sharing Jennie! Enjoy your day, and the weekend. Michael
That’s exactly what beautiful flowers do. It was delightful. Glad you enjoyed it, Michael.
What a cheerful sight!
It was also unexpected, which made it even more cheerful.
what a lovely beginning to a day. I love to go to market
It definitely was. I don’t go as often as I should. Perhaps that made the flowers even more glorious. 🌻
It’s worth the trip just for the flowers that greet you! It’s beautiful!
Yes, it really is! 🌻
Yummy field of dreams!
Exactly! I always love your words, Laura. 😍
Delightful, indeed! ☀Have a lovely day, Jennie! xo
Thank you, Bette! 🌻
Beautiful, Jennie. Thanks for the flower power this morning.
I should have titled the post “flower power”. You nailed it, John. Thank you!
Wow! Those are so beautiful how could you not be inspired by that view!
My thoughts exactly, Marlene. It was a big wow!
That is a nice, and clever, thing for the market to do. It gets you in a good mood for buying! 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
Yes it does! These flowers are cut and sold at the market. Win-win. Three cheers for beautiful flowers. Best to you, Pete.
What a happy picture!
Thank you, Darlene! 🌻
This time our zinnia seeds came straight from Burpee instead of the store and they have bloomed with outrageous abandon.
That is good to know! Thank you, Elizabeth.
Sunflowers and zinnias are two of my favourite flowers. This year, in my garden, the zinnias are very tiny, and the sunflowers are huge, so they are truly Mutt and Jeff.
They’re my favorites, too. How funny that you have a Mutt and Jeff combo this year! 🙂
What a beautiful sight, Jennie such a lovely start to the day 🙂 xx
It definitely was, Carol. Best to you! 🙂
Love me a sunflower
Beautiful. Such a bright and wonderful gesture.
It took me by surprise, pretty much sweeping me off me feel. Thanks, Kim!
Beautiful and cheery, Jennie. A great share to bring smiles. 🙂
Thank you, Diana. We all need smiles! 😀
Aww – so many happy flowers! What a wonderful way to start the day, Jennie! 😀🌹💕
I can’t think of the last time I saw so many flowers. I’m glad you enjoyed it, Sarah!
I’m totally stealing this pic to put as my iPhone wallpaper! Oops!
Yes! Please do!
