Tired

One of the many sights I will miss as we approach the end of summer. The drooping heads of sunflowers on their stalks always remind me of babies when they fall asleep in their car seats or highchairs. Just can't hold their heads up for a moment longer. . .
they smell better than babies...nice one

@steeler depends on when you pick up the baby! yesterday, Logan smelled of dirt - he was sooooo full of mischief, so i would have to agree with you! usually he smells like baby lotion. scrumptious.

@leananiemand thank you! i saw this flower growing, all alone, in a stretch of dirt along an access road that runs between the local mall and a gas station that people are not supposed to use - but everyone does! LOL.

@amers79 Thanks, Amy. they are kind of forlorn, in a way, at this time of year, all droopy and top heavy but still so beautiful.

That backlit sunshine causing the shadow is lovely but it is a sad shot to see the head dropped, our summer (such as it was) is ending too.

@claireuk i thought it was sort of sad, too. i saw this sunflower one day, thought about taking the photo, then saw it 2 days later and got out of the car while malcolm was putting gas in, walked the 100 feet over there and took the photo. it was all alone and droopy. i am sure people wondered what i was doing but i don't care. poor thing, needed a drink, i am sure, but i didn't have any water with me.

i like the colours here, and yes, this is one of the things i will miss.

@summerfield it just caught my eye and i couldn't resist it. it was very chilly here this morning. summer is quickly leaving, although it warmed up during the day.
