Sunflowers drying down, provide early Autumn food for our feathered friends.
I dried a few Sunflower heads in the greenhouse for Autumn decorating.
I can’t help but think of the cycle, that once again has transpired in my garden.
From the seeds planted in early May, to the beautiful tall blossoms standing in the garden mid Summer.
As early Fall rolls in and the Sunflower heads dry–the birds feed on each little dried blossom.
My garden is getting ready to rest, with our first snow in the forecast the next day or so.
It too, is good for this gardener to rest.
The perennial gardens are now past their peak, but we are still treated with late Summer flowers.
