The onset of cool temperatures these last two days is the beginning of the end of summer, I think. Here is a glorious sunflower, a last hurrah! I photographed this flower, growing wild, in the small nature preserve two blocks from home. Lovely!
And here is another sunflower: a tin sun face I installed on the wall of my front entry. It's so bright and cheery, and I think it goes well with my rubber-ducky-yellow door. I found this decoration at a local greenhouse and garden emporium. I love yellow. It's smiles and sunshine.
