Sunflowers Have Faded

The bright yellow sunflowers in the backyard have faded and fallen by chipmunks and squirrels. They jumped upon the long stalks to harvest its seeds. The sunflowers were grown for wildlife to appreciate as well as for my own backyard pleasure. This season has been especially unpredictable with unheard of warm spells, however, the tomato plants are still active. Autumn colors have not transpired like last years glorious displays. Perhaps it is due to the lack of rainfall. I remembered  going out in a rain shower for a walk and able to enjoy the landscapes. I enjoy Autumn when nature progresses each week to winter. It is time to take the bicycle out for a tour and analyze what nature has in store for me to capture. 🙂
