cosy fall colours

following the sun






We have had some beautiful late summer days here this past week and I am really enjoying the sunshine and gorgeous blue skies, along with the warm temperatures.   Summer's last blast.


Down the road at the apple orchard I found a plantation of sunflowers growing so I carefully went down the deep ditch and snapped some pictures.  They are so beautiful with their bright golden faces following the sun.










There were some bees buzzing about the blooms.


The larger picture.  In the foreground is a field of pumpkins for the fall u-pick.


No frost on the pumpkins yet.  :)



Thanks for visiting.  I hope you are enjoying nice weather where you live.  I know we are.
There was a few inches of snow in Calgary yesterday.  Good thing we came home last Thursday!

Blessings,

Pamela

  11. There's nice weather on either end of the country, with cold in between. Brrrr. The sunflowers are so cheery and their habit of following the sun is wonderful. Let's enjoy these warm days of sunshine while they last.

  13. There are quite a few fields of sunflowers here Pam, but their heads are all drooping now. A large group of them make a nice photo as a reminder of late summer and the pumpkins say fall is coming.
    I think there was frost on the grass in a northern exposure one morning earlier this week, it sure was nippy walking the dog.

  19. Glorious colours of autumn! Every year I vow to plant sunflowers and never do. It's just too shady up here in the woods. Perhaps in the new house!............

  20. What glorious Canadian fall color. This week is cool, cloudy, sunny, wet, drizzly. And snow predicted for the mountains. They can have all they want. Our farmer friends used to raise sunflowers. The seeds were harvested and shipped to Kansas for oil until one day when the combine caught fire from the combustion of the very fine sunflower dust. They decided no more sunflowers, which was sad because I loved to photograph them. Yours are gorgeous and well worth the effort to photograph them

  21. You can't help but smile when you see sunflowers! Those are beauties. I wish some of that cold air would travel down south here. We're tired of the heat!

  22. I love, love, LOVE sunflowers! Sadly, they are all but gone in these parts. I think it is so cool the way they always have their faces to the sun...guess that's why they call 'em sunflowers...:)
