This sunflower field is Alabama’s happy place - AL.com
Todd, who has worked as a truck driver for the past 26 years, remembers being in Arkansas when he got a call from a friend who asked him, “Do you know what’s going on in your sunflower field? They’re everywhere, man!”Every summer since then, people have continued to be everywhere in his breathtakingly beautiful fields filled with 6-foot-tall, scratchy stalks. It’s become a popular place to capture proposals, senior portraits, birthdays and babies – and to pick bouquets to take home. Professional photographers are welcome to do photo shoots in the field for a $20 fee.In addition to the sunflowers, which are sold for $1 each or $10 for a souvenir bucket that holds about 14 stems, the Sheridans also sell homegrown produce at the field – watermelons, cantaloupes, yellow squash, bell peppers, cucumbers and more. They offer T-shirts for $20 and tea towels for $12.Last year, Todd accidentally killed a whole field when he sprayed liquid fertilizer on the blooms. He had to replant, and the next crop bloomed in August. By then, his wife, Kim, was back at work as a school nurse, and most children were back in school, so attendance was down from what it would have been in July.So far, this has been the best summer yet for The Sunflower Field. “This year, we’ve hit all the marks,” he says. “We’ve finally got it figured out.”The flowers bloom for about two weeks at a time, so Todd plants them in two separate fields. The first 18-acre field was in full bloom around the Fourth of July, and the second one, on about 17 acres, opened to the public July 11. He expects the blooms to last through Sunday, July 21.After the sunflowers’ heads hang low, Todd will use a combine to harvest the seeds and bag them for sale to local feed stores as birdseed. And next May, he’ll start the process all over again.The Sunflower Field is located at 3301 Alabama Highway 14 West in Autaugaville. Open daily while blooms last, from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Admission is free, but the farm is cash-only. Nov 28, 2018
Artists take diverse approaches to flowers in two central Arkansas exhibits - Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
Two current exhibits in central Arkansas present a diversity of approach -- the metalpoint creations of Marjorie Williams-Smith at Hearne Fine Art and the oil paintings of Diana Shearon at Red Door Gallery.
Williams-Smith, who is retired from the art faculty at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, works in the demanding, intricate sphere of metalpoint -- silver, copper, gold and more -- to create images that appear to be almost academic botanicals.
Until you let them soak in.
"The Messengers: A Survey of Work in Metalpoint" presents 39 works by Williams-Smith from 1987 through this year. The 1987 piece, Pin Rose, is a silverpoint and graphite work that is simple and direct, yet hints at resistance to being constrained.
Initially working only in silverpoint, Williams-Smith has exerted her command over other metals as well, enriching her work with different backgrounds (black gesso and color tints) and integrating watercolor, crayon and other media as welcome pops of color and emotional texture. But this creative expansion never takes away from her skillful metalpoint technique.
Case in point: what is perhaps her most striking and beautiful work yet, the stunning Divine Energy, a 28-by-20 inch silverpoint, watercolor, crayon, white charcoal and graphite on tinted acrylic gesso and watercolor paper. It is a painstakingly executed presentation of allium schubertii -- aka flowering onion. In Williams-Smith's... Nov 15, 2018
Wednesday's Patriots notebook: Flowers drawing praise
It was love at first drill.
“Oh, man. I loved Trey even when I went to work him out at Arkansas, and I knew when I went over there that this was a guy that (Patriots Coach Bill Belichick) would target,” Vrabel said. “Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get him when I was in Houston. I loved his ability and really enjoyed the workout that I had with him and just loved the player then.
“And just to watch him progress and develop as a pro, he’s just a really good player. He’s a very sound player. His technique, his hands, he uses his length very well, he can bend. I could go on and on. I’ve liked him for a lot of years since I went and saw him at Arkansas, and it’s no surprise that Bill and that organization liked him as well.”
Belichick was not to be outdone is his praise. Speaking roughly an hour before Vrabel, the Patriots’ coach dove into the finer details of his best defensive lineman’s game. Basically, Flowers can do it all.
“Trey has a really good feel for leverage and the weight distribution of the players. So, if the guy’s light, he can push him back. If a guy’s kind of leaning on him, he can get around him with his quickness. He uses his hands well, he plays on his feet, he has good balance and he runs well,” Belichick said.
“You know, he can run out and track guys down, make plays from the backside. But, he’s just got a good f... Nov 15, 2018
Flowers continues to bloom for Patriots
Mike Vrabel, whose team will oppose the Patriots at Nissan Stadium this afternoon, remembers working out Flowers when he was coming out of Arkansas in 2015.“Just to watch him progress and develop as a pro, he’s just a really good player,” said Vrabel. “He’s a very sound player. His technique, his hands, he uses his length very well, he can bend.“I could go on and on. I’ve liked him for a lot of years since I went and saw him at Arkansas and it’s no surprise that Bill and that organization liked him, as well.”A fourth-round draft pick of the Patriots, four years later, Patriots linebackers coach-de facto defensive coordinator Brian Flores says that respect for Flowers runs throughout the locker room at Gillette Stadium.“I think you’d be hard-pressed to find somebody who works harder than Trey,” said Flores. “On the field, in the weight room, in the training room, really across the board, this guy works incredibly hard.“We call him the quiet storm. You don’t hear much from him, but he’s been a warrior for us and he’s played lights-out for us, really, since he’s gotten here. Everyone in the building respects him. He leads by example. Again, he doesn’t say much, but he works extremely hard, he works at his technique, he works at his craft every day and he makes a lot of plays for us. He’s a joy to coach and a joy to be around.”Belichick spoke of Flowers’ technique and the progress he’s made since entering the league as a fourth-round draft pick in 2015 the day after he’d helped shut down Buffalo’s offense in the Patriots’ 25-6 Monday night victory over the Bills on Oct. 29.“His overall playing strength, technique and quickness and athleticism on the edge, on the end of the line, he does a good job with all of that,” Belichick said of Flowers, who was credited with six tackles and two QB hits in that game. “He really always has.“I mean, certainly he’s improved, like every player has and every player does that works hard and gets more experience. He did a pretty good job of that, really, his second year. His first year he missed the majority of the year (inactive for 10 games, active for just one before being placed on the injured reserve list) and wasn’t all that healthy in training camp when he was out there, but from that point on he’s been pretty good with it.”
