Sunflowers in the San Cristobal Valley signifying the end of summer and start of fall. It’s beginning in the high desert of northern New Mexico. An arctic blast is heading our way tomorrow and Wednesday. Snow is also forecast where we live. Nothing new here or out of the ordinary. Snow can be expected, and often is expected, any time after labor day. Snow on the sunflowers should make for some nice images. Thanks for looking. G

Blanket flowers, San Antonio Mountain. These blanket flowers are growing beautifully wild in view from the car along highway 285 at San Antonio Mountain. They are easy to spot as we drive past, glowing, all happy looking in the morning light. Incidentally, San Antonio Mountain is reputed to be the largest free standing (not attached to any mountain range) mountain in the 48 States. Thanks for looking. G

Sunflower Sun Shower Sky

Sunflower sun shower and sky. Yesterday evening in San Cristobal, NM. A short stroll down the driveway, under the sunset, where all the volunteer sunflowers grow, and I give my attention to the moment. A slight rain, the flower, the sky, and this one is in the can. Print it! Thanks for joining me and for looking. G
