Most of the color is gone from the trees and flowers except for the muted brown of the oak leaves. The sun is getting lower in the sky, the nights are longer, and we have had our first snowfall. Even with a grey outlook for the bleakness of winter, with photos we can still experience the sun’s warmth and cheer. Enjoy the sunshine of the first two pictures and the reality check of the last.
Sunflowers get their name both from their likeness to the sun and to their sun-seeking head turns during the day. Around here the outer petals are mostly withering, but I found these all in one yard in our neighborhood. The seeds are nearing maturation and will provide food for birds or humans or perhaps seed new flowers for the next summer. Which image do you like most? Why?
