Last week we hosted a missionary couple from the Central American country of Belize, the same couple that hosted me for five days in mid-August as I completed a mission trip to assist in packing 100 backpacks for kids sponsored in their non-profit organizations back to school efforts. On Tuesday we had a kind of reunion dinner with folks that have made similar trips to mine to a place called Heart House, where kids can come to play, read and learn about Jesus Christ. Since our flowers are blooming their hearts out I cut multiple stems to make bouquets to decorate the tables.
I also cut about a dozen Sunflowers to pass out, but the two large bouquets wound up going home with two of the ladies from our mission teams. I told one of them I had about five times more blooms on the plants at home and I would not miss them.
All of the flowers in this vase came from Alpine Acres Flower Farm, our homestead in Virginia.
