It's the end of the summer now; in fact the weather has just snapped its jaws, hard, and overnight the leaves on my apple tree turned yellow and the tomato plants started to fail. It's early, and some things (like the grape vine) will be lucky to make harvest at all. But as we start to shade into September rain, some plants have the right idea about what they should be doing. These below are a mix of the brave sunflower survivors of my slug-tattered garden and the bedding (dahlias, sunflower, prairie daisy) in my local park. And they're all yellow, like suns in the border.
