These heavy-headed sunflowers went to market…
…in a park with brick sidewalks, leafy skies and yellow, construction vehicles.
The market was pretty and farm fresh. But the nearby construction was kinda loud so they were happy to go for a walk, see a neighborhood smack in the midst of change.
Lots of locals were hanging out.
Many of them were sporting excellent hues…
and urban edge.
The six sunflowers flowers ran into some like-minded shapes who had tempting timing.
~ fat pig whispers from offstage: FX McRory’s (who owns this Time To Dine clock) serves bar-tastic, finger-lickin’ chicken wings, buttery prime rib and crunchy, loaded nachos. Woot!
Then they checked out the new vibe that fresh cement was laying down.
They stopped to shop for dinner.
~ fat pig oinking again from offstage where apparently it’s challenging to stay quiet: Rain Shadow Meats in Pioneer Square rocks: immaculate butcher shop with lunch counter that serves beverages and snacks through happy hour. There’s beer, celery sodas, fat sandwiches, steak tartar, charcuterie, cheeses and such. Sometimes they have bread pudding. Go there!
Six center-seeded sunflowers went wandering through shimmery city streets…
past tall towers, high in the cloudstruck sky
across yellow-striped pathways
all the way home where a hippo on a wall said hello in a hexagon.
The heavy-headed sunflowers were pleased to see that the whole myth about flowers choosing people who look like them was accurate after all. Or at least it was for them on that August afternoon in Pioneer Square.
Wee wee wee…all the way home.
