Second Time Around the Garden - Sunflowers - Late Summer 2018

I hope you all have been enjoying the changing light that these shortening days September are bringing. We have had lots of rain, lots of heat, and now some more seasonable days. The garden is actually winding down and after last week's massive rains, many of the plants - including the sunflowers have toppled over. 

Luckily I took these photos before the rains came and so I can share them with you today. Soon we will be looking at falling leaves, changing autumn colors and then gray November. It's good to have a record of each garden season here at the farm and this blog has served a great record keeping space for me. 

I hope you enjoy all the colors of the late summer garden. Have a great week ahead everyone!
