It's almost October at I picked up my kids from school this afternoon and it was 106°. Sheesh! These beautiful sunflowers graced my garden late this summer, but I enjoyed them immensely nevertheless.
When I think of a summer flower I think of sunflowers. So cheerful even amidst the serious heat we get out here in Southern California. These things got 6 feet tall before they even bloomed. Can't wait to plant more next year!
