A postscript to the garden in the city.

John sent this to me in October.  Sunbeams is the Salvation Army program for girls age 6 – 12.

It was magical last night at Temple Corps’ youth activities.

The Sunbeams occupied Temple Gardens and harvested five gigantic sunflowers. First we cut the head off the flower. Then we scraped the seeds out of the flower. The Sunbeams also selected a flower each and picked it to bring home with them.

As we left the garden there was a beautiful rainbow in the sky. Some of the girls asked if I had made the rainbow for them. Next week we will roast, salt and eat our splendid harvest!
