28 July 14

In the early French Republic (1790s), the leaders devised a brand-new annual calendar, associating days with agricultural items like crops, animals and farm implements. The tenth day of Thermidor (which is July 28 on our calendar) honored the WATERING CAN (Arrosoir). I don't know if our beautiful sunflowers will be around for Sunflower Day on 19 Vendémiaire (our October 10).
