School starts back here today, a big day for so many children.
A new school year full of promise.
As I stepped outside to head across the garden to my neighbor's home,
(I've been house/Ms. Nala cat sitting for the past ten days), there was a
definite welcome change in the air, cool with a crisp breeze. Lovely!
They have enjoyed the sunshine and heat. . . . . . and have given me so much pleasure.
My own little sunflower patch here in the garden.
Now their seeds are drying, readying for visits from the birds and squirrels.
Feasting will begin soon.
With leftover figs and plenty of sunflower seeds our garden is a popular place to visit.
The bowing heads of sunflowers. . . . . . . even as they fade and display
their tattered beauty, these amazing flowers still manage to brighten
the sunny morning.
