Fading Summer

Darker earlier, sunup later, breezes cooling despite the warm days. I bring a little of it indoors to keep it going a bit longer. It rained all day yesterday, and gray today, but Indian Summer is just around the corner with it's crisp air and bright sun. Happy SUNday everyone!

The SUNflower is a reminder to look and see if anybody commented on my SUNflower on Canon Pixels. It is a bronze one.

I think I like your sunflower better as it got the bronze color too and is yellow.

Nice post.

Oh yeah, it's coming this way. Nelson summers are great, for most people - long, hot, dry sunny days - beach, sand, blue skies... Children playing outside until late. It's just that... ummm... ummm... it's too hot and sunny and cheerful for me. I like all the other seasons... Oh well.

It looks like a photo of the sun itself.

I absolutely love the colours in this one. It reminds me of my 13th birthday, which was sunflower themed. This is quite striking.
