Sunflower's Bounty

Summer's end brings many changes as Autumn takes hold.

As I walked among the trees, the shrubs, the plants, the flowers and the gardens of Yew Dell Gardens in Crestwood on Sunday, I was reminded of Summer, but also of what is to come with this new season. The plants and flowers were beginning to show signs of want. I lingered among the tall stalks seeking to capture the moment. ENJOY!

Sunflowers stood tall in a small garden patch.
Flowers hung heavy on lanky stalks.
Leaves dried and brittle.
Blooms devoid of color.
Seeds the only proof of life.


  1. I just love this photo and your thoughts and the poem. Did you make up the poem? It's wonderful!

    1. Thank you Pamela. The poem is mine. I'm so glad you like it.

  2. Lovely, this is another page in your book, words with one photo, together complete. Beautiful focus on the aged sunflower. Cheers,Jean
