Gone To Seed

Blue sky days this time of year mean cold nights, even into the teens, but for a short time in the middle of the day, it is gorgeous in the garden. Most of the pink poppy seeds are gone. Even the few seed  heads that remain are probably empty.

The meadow is filled with fuzzy goldenrod seed heads. From a distance they look a dull brown, a perfect hiding place for the deer. Close up, against the blue sky, I find them quite beautiful.


The bed of Gloriosa Daisies is loaded with seed heads.



This red sumac will be an attraction for the birds all winter .

In the late evenng , seeds dance in the sunlight. It's is an amazing sight. If only my camera would capture the golden color of the light, and the way the light glints off the seeds that float before my eyes.

Hi Becky. What a wonderful image of the seeds dancing on the breeze. Seed heads do have a beauty all their own in the Fall. Don't you just love the fuzzy Goldenrods?

I have heard this first time. But that is a serious problem and we should carry out all of the major solutions from them. And need to solve the problem.
