Jon Crispin's Notebook


Posted in Flowers, Insects, Jon Crispin, Nature, Plants, Willard Suitcases by joncrispin on 23/08/2013

I had to get the oil changed in Cristine’s car early today and as I was driving through Hadley I saw this field of sunflowers.  I stopped on the way home and grabbed a few shots.  Some of the flowers were huge.  Big honkin’ leaves too. /  Peggy Ross came over to work with me on the site (which I am so far behind on) and we got a ton done on the FAQ section.  I hope to be able to finish it up by early September.  /  There is a nice interview on the Port Magazine (UK) site about the suitcases.  Here is the link.  Betty Wood has been following the project from very early on, and she did a great job asking questions and putting it all together.  I was really fun talking to her and am so grateful for her interest and support.

    You were reading Hank’s mind! He was just about to post a few photos of some big honkin’ flowers, but being in the city, we have nothing like fields of them–great image! Thanks for the link to the interview–we’ll check it out soon!

    How appropriate to take a break from the asylum project with a photo that evokes poor Mr Van Gogh.

    John, I began following you because of the suitcases. I enjoy every one of your posts, and I’m proud to say, you’ve become a friend. Just sayin’.

    Jon, I know this is an old post, but I remember this field, but not exactly where it is. I was working on Venture, but I now it was south of there. Can you help?

      Hi Carol, it is on the cut through road that runs along the embankment on the river in Hadley. Just drove by and the field is smaller but they are in flower now.
