The Mountain View Farmers’ Market is pretty great. On Sunday there were piles and piles of peaches (many different kinds of white and yellow), plums, and pluots (including flavor grenade…what? exactly). I had never even had a pluot until a couple of weeks ago!
One of the booths was just full of sunflowers. The sunflower bests the rose any day:
No, the heart that has truly loved never forgets / But as truly loves on to the close: / As the sunflower turns on her god when he sets / The same look which she turned when he rose. - Believe Me, if All Those Endearing Young Charms, Thomas Moore
