Jar of Wishes, Sunflowers and Daisies

I always feel a little guilty when I leave the grocery store with an armful of flowers, a bag of chips and some cookies instead of eggs and cheese like normal people. The checkout clerks at Kroger give one another a knowing look when they see me push my cart up to the line filled with flowers. They haven't quite gotten over the day I set a vase full of flowers on the conveyer belt from the refrigerated section of the floral department (where things are so marked up in price only insane flower smitten artists would purchase them). When the lovely bouquet in its vase reached the "end" of the conveyer belt, over it went, spilling a quart of ice cold water everywhere.

These sunflowers and delphiniums were a bit better behaved in the checkout line. They braved the Texas heat all the way home and stayed perky for their careers as professional models in Flower Mound Studio this evening.

Sunflowers doing their best to remain perky
